For us, home schooling is an exciting adventure; it is a journey, not a chore. Geography, culture, history, and language we did via world schooling. It’s a relatively new term and difficult to define. To us, it refers to learning by doing, but getting out of your comfort zone, by exploring, and by trying new things. It’s a form of unschooling, mixed with self-schooling, and travel.
In 2012 we took our girls around the world, visiting over 30 countries and that is when we began to understand better the concept of world schooling.
For us, world schooling is also about having fun learning as a family, together.
Here is a bit of fun, educational moments:
Do we do traditional academic learning as well? Of course we do. If we need books in English when we travel, we have them shipped to us from Amazon. A few of our more fun projects were:
- Learning to find “south” with the stars.
- Discovering why toilet water spins the opposite direction when you cross the equator.
- Separating the hydrogen and oxygen out of the water.
World schooling works for us, would it work for you?
