One of the main reasons that I love homeschool is the flexibility it provides us. We are a very outdoors family, and we all love to be out and about exploring new places. We are lucky to live in a very rich area of US History! George Washington crossed the Delaware River 8.5 miles from our house, and the battle of Trenton was fought down the street!
We have a lot of amazing resources at our finger tips, and our location in NJ allows us access to NJ, NY and PA sites. There is NEVER a shortage of things to do! This year we are planning to visit the following:
Franklin Institute, Philadelphia PA
Adventure Aquarium, Camden NJ
Crayola Factory, Easton PA
Howell Living History Farm, Lambertville NJ
Elmwood Zoo, Norristown PA
Turtleback Zoo, West Orange, NJ
Science Center, Allentown PA
Bowmans Tower and Washington Crossing State Park, Washington Crossing NJ
Planetarium, Trenton, NJ
Bucks County Children’s Museum, New Hope, PA
In addition we will be making weekly trips to the library, bank, and grocery store. I love the bank and store because the girls are gaining an understanding of money, how we manage it and why we make the choices we make. The grocery store is a fantastic place for them to start comparing prices (math), sorting labels and working off of a list. I love life lessons!
