What is Roadschooling? Get free passes to parks, museums and zoos

Supporting your fulltime RV adventures and aspirations

People keep coming out with different slogans to describe new things.  As a result, the new term for this year is Road Schooling. So what is Roadschooling?  It actually is pretty easy to explain:  it is school on the road.  roadschooling 1This can be incorporated into any curriculum such as homeschooling, Unschooling, or kids that go to Normal school. Road school could be a trip to the zoo to learn about animals, and their habitats.  Some families travel around world, and some zig zag all over America, while many take smaller trips. In addition, to traveling we learn history, geography, visit zoos, museums and forts, just to name a few.

roadschoolingOur children self direct their own education or Unschool but now we stop at cool roadside attractions. Road schooling has opened our eyes to all the places along the road that can become educational.  Sometimes, we will learn geography by following on Google maps, or maybe history at a rest stop.  Most of all, for anyone that loves the idea, check out the websites to get free or inexpensive memberships.

Best Membership for the price

We found the best membership to be Boonshaft Museum of Discover family membership for around  $100 for a year (as of 2016).  It is good for two adults and six children all living in the same household.  This membership gets you into zoo, aquariums, children zoos, and science and technology museums all for one low price.  As a result, most offer free admission and some are only half price.
