12 Zany Roadschool activities in Montgomery Alabama on a Budget

We travel fulltime in a 300 square foot home on wheel (an RV) and Roadschool or Unschool along the way.  I love telling you’ll about the places we find to explore and visit.  We found 12 Zany Roadschool activities in Montgomery, Alabama that are free, almost free or on a very small budget (like ours). With our field trips we also do a little google school (research on the internet) and sometimes when we are really Continue reading

Take step back in time and learn history of Dubois

Step back in time with us as you learn the history of Dubois and how the cowboys ruled the land and men made a living clear cutting forests. We stumbled onto this museum after taking a fun family hike around the back of the KOA, where we are staying for the summer. The history of Dubois (duh-boy-s) actually started outside the museum, with several small log cabins that represented some of the towns homes or business Continue reading

The museum starts off by showing the highlights of young Gerald Ford, formative Continue reading

Unschooling in Texas means visiting lots of museums and historical sites along the way.  We only had time to pick two museums this time because the first day it threatened to snow and they closed down the city and cancelled school just like our hometown, Savannah.  I guess they have no snow equipment or anyway to de-ice bridges that tend to freeze when it gets cold enough. The first museum we visited was the Houston Space Continue reading

How do we Unschool history in Louisiana?

The first place we found was the Louisiana state museum. Adults are only $6 a piece and kids under 12 are free.  The two state museums offer Louisiana history, predating European history all the way Continue reading
