schoolwork while on a road trip

With our Thanksgiving trip to Grandma’s house this week, my family did some test-driving of the concept of roadschooling. What’s roadschooling? You know, homeschooling while on-the-go…In this case, we were just driving 8 hours to Grandma’s house, but lots of families employ this technique to their everyday lives. An image of RV’ers comes to mind, driving across the country in a motorhome and seeing the sights along the way. We stick to home base most of the time, but thank goodness for the internet, because we can do some schoolwork online while driving. My kids played online nature games and did some workbook pages about Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving hundreds of years ago. I brought the Schoolhouse Rock DVD for them to watch in the car, too. Every little bit counts, right?
