Green Energy & Conservation – Topic of the week in our homeschooling curriculum
Really interesting few days as the girls have worked through the green energy, recycling and sustainability focus in this week’s topic… quite often we’re asked in conversation when discussing home schooling “Do you have a fully planned curriculum” or “What do you do to ensure you cover everything“.
Whilst also ensuring we keep it topical and relevant to whatever is newsworthy at the time – Green Energy being one of those instances. The Scottish concerns over fracking/gas fields on Newsnight this week was discussed today. With both girls strident in their views of how best to protect the NE of Scotland (having visited Aberdeenshire in January).
Whilst the recent trip to the tulip fields of Haarlem, Holland were easily linked to the water cycle when planting these bulbs that we purchased at the time (in April) to ensure a splash of colour across their grandparents gardens later in the summer.
So with a basic framework to try and follow, all faithfully recorded on the macbook ensuring a collection of ever growing scheme of works…. to be added on this site by June… we are throughly enjoying the opportunity to engage both girls in parts of the curriculum that both interest them practically but also have a relevance to our journey.
