The following is a post from contributing writer Stef.
If you are anything like me, chances are you can see the homeschool finish line and are ready for a long summer break! Rather than ditch school work completely the next few months, why not change things up a bit for light summer time learning.
Rather than stick to the “core curriculum” embrace a relaxed homeschool mentality.
Summer time is a great opportunity to have fun and learn about topics that might not be included in your curriculum during the year.
10 Summer Learning Activities
- Talk about the water cycle while running through sprinklers.
- Read about tides & moon cycles or anything beach related (erosion, sea turtles, shells, etc.).
- Dig into American History and truly celebrate July 4th.
- Create your own summer Olympics and learn about the history of a sport.
- Beat the heat and make popsicles together. Try different recipes & learn about healthy food/fruits.
- Map constellations and read Greek myths.
- Collect tadpoles and watch them grow (or caterpillars).
- Set up a lemonade stand and learn how to budget and manage money.
- Map a road trip and take it.
- Camp out. Learn about the nocturnal animals in your area.
What fun things do you have planned this summer?
