Summer opens up an entirely different type of classroom to homeschooled students and their parents. No longer is it required to sit inside a room full of books, paper and pens to learn a lesson. There are many different summer activities that promote learning and growth.
Camping is an excellent way to teach children about the world they live in. It is also a good way to teach history. Comparing the way people lived one hundred years ago to the way we live now is definitely an eye opener. Surviving a weekend or one night at a campsite with no game system, television or computer is a true life lesson. Instead of sitting in front of a tv or playing video games, children can be taught the different types of trees and plants and what they are used for. Forest plants were used for medicinal purposes before the development of our modern medicines. Cooking on an open fire is a skill that can be used in case of power outages.
