Three Ways To Learn Over The Summer

We are officially in summer mode!  

Our state requires end of the year evaluations.  Both Kyle and Sarah did great and we're looking forward to 7th grade and 10th grade respectively!  

Just because we are done with 'book' learning, doesn't mean that learning gets put on hold over the summer!  This is a great time of year to do things that are educational and yet the kids are just having fun, so they don't think they are 'doing school,' if you know what I mean.


Here are three ways to learn over the summer.

1.  Get Outdoors!  Find a local park with a hiking trail, visit a National Seashore, hang out in your back yard.  All these places provide cool opportunities to find bugs, birds, and other creatures.  They also provide plants, trees and rocks.  All of these things will teach your kids simple classification of animals and plants, what kinds of birds are native to your area, what dew looks like on a garden spiders' web.  

We like the Pocket Naturalist Guides.…
