Life's a Beach (Giveaway Hop)


While we get our travel bug out most of the time, summer time usually brings out the wanderlust in families...  You have a little bit of flexibility, maybe more free time than usual, and it's human nature to want to break up the monotony a bit.

For a lot of families, however, our current economy / political climate do not lend itself toward travel.  This is why we created a whole blog post about the Staycation, and another on the Near-cation, perfect for families who want to get away, but within a budget!

Summer Getaway @ Home
Another way to getaway is through in-depth geography unit studies.  With our newest curriculum, Cooking Around the World, you can Travel the World from Your Kitchen Table!  There are twelve countries featured, and each country includes recipes, books, printable activities, crafts, and more for a complete unit study.

A bit about this unit :

Cook three to four dishes, and follow the Homeschool Connections unit page for each country.  
  • Italy
  • India
  • France
  • America
  • Germany
  • England
  • Greece
  • Russia
  • Egypt
  • China
  • Puerto Rico
  • Ireland
On our short list of international 'must-see' places is the country of Italy...specifically Rome.  Our children love studying both Latin and Classical History (we never claimed they were normal), and that helps fuel the desire to get there someday.  In the meantime, we're continuing Latin studies with this new, interactive story form of learning - Latin Adventure!

A bit about the unit :

Further study of Latin with proper nouns, declensions, and everyday use of Latin words and phrases in our modern society.  Demonstrated through a fictitious adventure, with interactive components.

Mommy Island and The Kids Did It are hosting a giveaway hope, with over one hundred giveaways for you to enter!  The hop runs from May 3 to May 17.  Good luck!

The winner from Gypsy Road will receive a copy of our two newest e-activity-books, "Cooking Around the World" AND "Latin Adventure!"
