Homeschooling and educating our kids doesn’t come in a cookie cutter, one size fits all option. Educating our kids includes building their knowledge in the core subject areas like reading, math, science, language arts, and history. Educating our kids is way more than academics.
In homeschooling, we have a chance to teach our children in a well-rounded way that includes life skills that will carry them throughout their adulthood. If your family likes to travel, then there are some powerful real-world life skills that can be learned in the traveling experience.
This post shares how through traveling as a family to exciting places can allow you to learn on location (and on the way to the location). It was good to get some perspective on the life skills and travel lessons for kids that happen with family travel.
Every time we travel with our family we can use the time fully as teachable moments. I have heard the world is a textbook, and when traveling, this comes all the more true. If you will do some more traveling this year with your family this FREE printable can help you decide “This or That?” as you learn on location with your family.
