The National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) reports, “…more than 2 million students (about 3.8 percent of the K-12 population) were being homeschooled in America in 2010.”
Homeschooling is currently “the fastest-growing form of education.” The popularity of this educational choice has resulted in more resources than ever before, but the vast number of resources can be overwhelming to those who
are new to home education.
Tammy is now facilitating an enrichment/supplemental tutorial:
Excursions in STEAM
Excursions in STEAM offers students the opportunity to take a topical journey to study the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics that is connected to a particular region in the world. Social Studies will also be interwoven throughout the journey. Over monthly Excursions, students will take a trip around the world as they experience a bit of what each part of the world has to offer.
Excursion #1: Egypt & the Middle East
Excursion #2: Greece & Turkey
Excursion #3: East Asia (China – etc)
Excursion #4: South Asia (India and Pakistan)
Excursion #5: Europe
Excursion #6: Australia & New Zealand
Excursion #7: Central & South America
Excursion #8: North America
Students will get their own Passport to use during the Excursions in STEAM journey. They will also have an Excursions in STEAM Journal that they will use to chronicle their journey each month.
A sample of topics for the K – 2 strand is shown on the left. The morning work is more focused around academics and making connections and applications. The afternoon work is focused around art, design, and engineering and technology. Work with vocabulary and writing are embedded all day.
