A “Typical” Homeschool Day on the Road in a Tiny House

NEWEST Video Out!

A “Typical” Homeschool Day on the Road in a Tiny House

🚎 🌞I finally did a video on our kids typical homeschool day, along with how it changes and how we adapt to boredom, burn out, traveling, tips, out mottos, and more! Keep in mind we are Texas and part AZ residents and the homeschool laws vary depending on your state residency. So my information is based on that! ALSO check out my new haircut that Crab gave me! ❤

Here are links to mentions in the video:

Science/Art: The Planets

A few weeks ago, we did a lot of research on our planets, rockets, space stations, astronauts, and space in general. We watched YouTube videos, explored NASA’s website, played space games, watched movies based in space (because sci fi is always fun:)), and wrote stories/drew pictures of what it would be like to live on a space station or mars! This project really encumbered most of the subjects we talk about, if not all. We used math, writing, science, computer skills, research skills, art, and like SpongeBob says I-Mag-I-Na-Tion! Here is the biggest project we completed:

Planets of Our Solar System

I found a lot of individual projects on pinterest about the solar system, but I wanted a giant one because things are cooler when they are bigger, both of my girls could work on it, and it is cool to look at. 🙂

We only did the planets on this one, along with each one's temperatures since we were talking about how cold or hot each one can be.

This one was fun. We watched documentaries on Netflix about astronaut training and hopefully we will take a trip to Houston’s Space Museum sometime in the near future..maybe after the Skoolie is finished for sure! I hope this helped anyone else looking for ideas!

Science/Art: The Human Body

Earlier this year we talked about the Human Body and the internal organs. We learned about how our food is digested, how our brains send signals to our muscles and nerves, and even about how many bones we have in our bodies!

The book below helped to get us started, and I found at a Goodwill for about $4 last year 🙂

A great resource for kids learning about the human body. They can touch and look at the major organs and skeletal system, and has brief descriptions inside.

What better way to really have elementary aged kids see and understand their insides than to make an art project out of it! I had each kid lay on some long paper (bought from Ikea and has lasted like 2 years!) and I traced each of them. Then we went through the above book and started to figure out what we should use for each piece.

We pretty much just used some tissue paper (we had a lot left over form some Christmas Clearance I attacked), streamer paper, Q Tips, Tape, markers, and Glue. We also used some of that packing material with the air bubbles all over to represent the lungs. I found another blogger who used spaghetti noodles and other fun stuff. My creative juices were not as strong on this day…and I noticed the longer it took us to go through it, the less interested these guys were. So I cut my losses and kept it minimum!

A very basic design of our major internal organs:) Mostly Tissue Paper, tissue streamers, and Tape for the longer bones

All in all, it was a fun project and I hope it helps anyone who is also thinking about their science plans and a way to spice it up!
