Learn Beyond The Textbook & Experience History
One of the absolute best parts of Home School in the Woods curriculum is that you get to learn what life was like during the time period you’re studying. Instead of just trying to memorize facts and figures, you’re learning what kids would wear then, what life was really like stuck on a boat for months at a time, what types of beds people slept in, etc. These details about real life had my kids hooked as they imagined themselves in the time period.
Sorry to say, that classic method of read a chapter, answer questions, just doesn’t work well for my family. When we do projects and create when learning, my kids retain so much more of the information they learn. We also end up having fun and memorable experiences together during history and this helps everyone enjoy a subject that I really didn’t like when I was in school.
