Eat Your Way Through the USA

Eat Your Way Through the USA

One of our favorite methods for studying geography is cooking our way around the world. Through food, we're not just learning random facts, we're experiencing cultures too. As we create and eat these popular dishes, we feel a special connection to the people from different lands and states. Most years I coordinate our geography studies with [...]

Homeschool in the Woods Knights Lap-Pak Review

Homeschool in the Woods Knights Lap-Pak Review thumbnail

I was contacted by Homeschool In The Woods (HSITW) and offered one of their lovely new products, Lap-Paks, to try out in exchange for an honest review.

Collaborating with Resource Specialists

Collaborating with Resource Specialists ⎜Eva@CurriculumChoice

When looking for curriculum resources and learning opportunities, one area that many families overlook are community resource specialists in your community. I have found that many specialists love sharing their knowledge and skills with young people. This is particularly true of agencies funded by our tax dollars like the Forest Service, Fish & Wildlife, and National Parks. When I [...]

The Revolutionary War Adventure

I am a big fan of Susan Kilbride’s Our America series of historical fiction for middle graders (and up!). In my review of the first three books, The Pilgrim Adventure, The King Philip’s War Adventure, and The Salem Adventure, I said I was looking forward to more from this author. I’m pleased to say the [...]

Your Local Public Library

Your Local Public Library – Do You Know All It Has To Offer?

After the Bible, the library is probably the most valuable resource we homeschoolers have access to, and it amazes me that some people homeschool without it.  Even those of us who use it regularly often do not take full advantage of its many resources. In fact, even though we use the library so faithfully that [...]
