Have you ever heard of roadschooling? It is hands-on homeschooling or, learning from personal experiences while you travel. I think unschooling and roadschooling have lots in common because both methods take advantage of every educational opportunity that comes your way.
Maybe you have a job that requires lots of traveling, if so, roadschooling is perfect because the whole family can travel together. The kids have the opportunity to learn about life everywhere you travel. The family is not separated for extended periods of time, they actually have more time to bond as a family. For example, your kids can visit Plymouth Plantation rather than just read about the Pilgrims in a textbook, they can see a geyser or climb a mountain rather than look at pictures in a book, they can learn about plants at a national park, or they can calculate distances as you drive to your next destination. The possibilities are endless because life is packed full of educational adventures.
Children learn much more by doing (hands-on) than by just reading or even just watching. Life requires you use all your senses, so the lesson becomes more cemented in your mind, not just learned for a quiz and then forgotten.
If you roadschool, please share some of your experiences with those of us who only dream of being able to roadschool!
