For example, we took a last-minute family trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, tagging along with my husband who had business there. I was able to turn this trip into a spontaneous “field trip” — complete with a unit study and scientific/historical tour — by creating a unit study on the fly. The basic idea is to make the most of learning opportunities while on the road whenever possible.
Do you ever get a chance to incorporate travel into your homeschooling plans? Have you had the chance to homeschool abroad? What other ways do you incorporate learning outside the “classroom” of home?
