Matt, Greetings , I am in Florida and also homeschool both of my children. We use mapping skills, computers for reservations , find historical locations along the way, document wildlife we see, math is mileage and estimating time /fiances, we find the history of the trails we use, they write journals and take MANY pictures!!
This is just the tip of what all we find ....because I have 2 boys road kill becomes a science experiment..we have stopped at cemeteries and the boys have studied the tombs and made a small scale time-line of some interesting people .
Gosh!!! Being a homeschooler the world is our classroom!!!
I teach a group of homeschoolers at the co-ops all about touring, camping, keeping safe , hydrating ( Florida) we have swam with manatees , dolphins in some of the rivers we have ridden to.
The boys researched the Fl lighthouses and then we road to most of them over the spring but we where chased away from the east coast when a hurricane came in ...we have had lessons on weather !
I also teach a ballroom dance group and many of them ride with us so we will find locations to perform /coach & meet other homeschoolers and many times I do a work shop for their co-ops...
I am working with a group of youth currently that are planning the Under Ground RR Trail as a destination..we are just working out the details to be able to find locations that can use a bunch of bicycle riding ballroom dance kids!! The Ballroom Dance Bicycle Brigade , Mom & Coach Gina
Hope this helps!
