Welcome to the “World School” edition of carnival of homeschooling.

We’ve been cooped up in our house by the blowing snow and freezing temperatures.

Here are some fun ideas of how homeschooling lets us explore the world (even if we can’t actually bask in the sun like we’d love to. )

So, where in the world would you like to go today for school?

Close Encounters with Africa, wild animals, (and younger siblings)

TaMara presents Leaving Africa posted at The Sloan Homeschool saying, “Highlights of our final week of our Africa study”

ChristineMM presents Autodidact Moment: What’s That Bird? posted at The Thinking Mother.

Katherine presents mother’s helper posted at No Fighting, No Biting!, saying, “I’m giving the idea of hiring a young person to play with the little ones while I complete school with the older children another go. I would rather pay someone to play with them than have them watch Veggie Tales yet again so we can get math completed in peace.”

Karen presents Competition and Brotherly Love posted at Stone Age Techie saying, “It’s about a particularly challenging evening in our house, a week or so ago.”

Visiting Paris -The City of Love

Megan presents In two straight lines they broke their bread posted at Afterschooling Expat saying, “In this post, our family, Americans living in Germany, visit Paris and use Madeline books as inspiration for learning about the famous, iconic Paris sites.”

    Scholars today look down on learning by heart or learning by repetition, because they believe that this type of learning prevents understanding of the subject.
