Fun With Projects!

Social studies projects are one awesome way to keep homeschool days interesting.  By taking what is being learned about the world around them and incorporating a hands-on project, homeschool students stay engrossed in their school day.  Is your student in the middle of learning about ancient  pyramids?  Build one at home with modeling clay and sand!  Have you been reading about the movement west?  Make a covered wagon.  Create a map, design a diorama, or craft a sculpture.  There are endless ways to bring history lessons to life in your homeschool.  Utilizing an online curriculum is a great way to stay on track, learn new skills, and reduce clutter but projects and crafts can often go a long way in making the stories seem real and interesting.
