For me “hands on learning” is getting out in the world and seeing and doing… basically the essence of homeschooling in my opinion.
From museums to stores to nature … you name it … it is all hands on 🙂
I remember growing up and going to school and thinking “while I sit in this classroom … life is happening out there”
This past week we hit the mountain for a hike / bike ride
We are fostering some kittens for a rescue group until they get adopted so my kids have been learning and observing the kittens all week … as cats are very different from dogs.
We checked out a museum we hadn’t been to in a couple of years.
The boys participated in an Apple workshop all about publishing an ebook.
Among the regular stops like the library, Aikido class, grocery store and other places just to name a few things we have done 🙂
