Road Trip Teacher and Unschooling Curriculum on the Black Hills

IMG_4189We are a unschooling family and normally do not use a unschooling curriculum but I like to shake things up every now and again.  We have been in the Black Hills for the last week and I thought it would be fun to reinforce what we have learned by using the Road Trip Teacher Study Guide.  The study guides are a great addition for those families that are traveling full-time, taking small vacations this summer or studying certain part of the US.  The idea is that you can reinforce the places you have visited on your computer, read in a book or seen in person (like us).

The girls had to answer questions by reading the paragraphs included, make a college of all the things they learned and write a fun story at the end using the facts they learned. They learned more about Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, bison, Indians, and Devils Tower to name a few.The Road Trip Teacher has many more study guides that are geared toward children ages K-6th grade, and can be adapted to any age.
