Benefits of Hands-on Activities
It’s important to put the books aside and let your kids get creative with hands-on projects that they can do to help them learn new lessons.
Adding them to your regular curriculum so they can learn science with experiments or history with art projects makes the lesson come alive.
Reading about something and actually doing it really cements the concept to your child’s memory creating lasting memories of fun.
School can look like cooking, science experiments, creating art projects, and building structures and dioramas. As a homeschooling parent, you have the flexibility to tailor activities to your child’s individual interests and learning style.
