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.

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.

Boom Bags – A Fun Strategy to Review Material

Boom Bags – A Fun Strategy to Review Material thumbnail

Sometime ago, I dropped by a middle school to visit a friend and former colleague. While there, I observed her students working in pairs to compete for points as they reviewed material for an upcoming exam. I was captivated by how enthusiastic the students were and how engaged they were in the activity. Boom Bags, as she called them, [...]
