Learning With Legos

This guide will show you how each required subject area (and some that aren’t) can be covered using LEGO blocks and mini-figures.  It will help you document, what might seem like play, as learning for your child’s portfolio.  This is intended as a spring board to inspire you and your child.  It should not be strictly adhered to or seen as complete and comprehensive. Most of all, it should not look or feel like school.

Chocolate and St. Valentine

As an introduction to this specific study, please consider that in our modern society, St. Valentine’s Day and chocolate seem to go hand in hand.  That has not always been the case.  This unit study looks at the legend of St. Valentine the man, and brings into question what our modern celebration has to do with his life, if anything, and why chocolate and St. Valentine are so closely linked.

HOME Hikes

In this study, you will discover how a hike in a local preserve or state park can be a lot more than a physical education activity in your homeschooling day.  You’ll look at geography, literature, science, and much, much more.  Join us on a HOME Hike or consider starting one in your area.  The same general format applies regardless of the location.
