NextGen Homeschool’s Post: Travel is the Ultimate Educational Adventure

NextGen Homeschool’s contribution to the series is about how Travel is… the Ultimate Educational Adventure! As homeschoolers, we have even more flexibility to take “school” on the road and turn any family trip into a new learning experience. However, you don’t have to be a homeschooling family to have a learning adventure when you’re traveling.

See my complete post at Word Traveling, where I’m sharing my tips on how you can turn any family trip into the ultimate educational adventure.
