Homeschooling on the go probably sounds difficult. On the contrary, it opens up some awesome possibilities for you to get creative and expand your curriculum. Here are a few tips for taking your homeschool on the road:
- Involve your surroundings: Driving through the desert? Taking a vacation in a major city? Take the opportunity to teach your kids about that kind of environment while you’re right in the middle of it! It’s the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about historical sites and landmarks and the successful people who have come from there. The idea is, while you have a real-life example right in front of you, use it to your advantage! By simply exploring the things around you, homeschooling on the go can be really easy.
- Combine subjects: Traveling while homeschooling also gives you a great opportunity to go interdisciplinary with your curriculum. Say for example, the science of the location’s typical weather, plus the history, all while having your kids read a book that takes place there. Go all out, and you’ll be surprised how much learning you can fit in while you’re homeschooling on the go!
- Relax: It’s going to be hard to stick to a strict schedule while you’re traveling, so try not to worry too much about it, and let things be flexible. Work educational opportunities in, like sight seeing and museum visits. Go with the flow and homeschooling on the go will be a snap!
