Great Home School Activities

Many types of home school activities are available for families today. Despite what some "nay-sayers" allege about homeschooled children not being socialized, most are actively involved in homeschool activities.

You can volunteer your services, seek out individual homeschooling activities or get connected with one of the home school support groups in your area.


Volunteerism


Here in Middle Tennessee for example, I know some families who volunteer their services at these places:

  • The Nashville Zoo
  • The Creative Discovery Museum
  • animal shelters
  • local libraries
  • businesses

Often, entire families can be together in the volunteer arrangement and continue to learn together.


Arrange Individual Events


Another outlet for homeschool activities is to personally contact local businesses and organize a tour or visit for your family and others, if you choose. Just be sure to check with the personnel to make sure that the activity is appropriate for the various ages of children you intend to bring.

The police station, fire station, bank, and local grocery store are a few of the trips we have arranged. These smaller places are excellent for single families or small groups.

On a trip to a local grocery store, our children were able to enter the large storage freezers and learn how bananas are stored and gassed before getting to the consumer. They enjoyed learning about some of the "behind the scenes" things that go on at a place they regularly visited.


Homeschool Support Groups


If you decide to register with a group, you will have access to events they arrange for their members such as:

  • park days
  • field trips
  • bowling/skating
  • teen events
  • proms/graduation ceremonies

Unfortunately, homeschooling facts are sometimes inaccurate concerning the degree of involvement in home school activities for families. Currently, there are so many choices available that many families have to carefully select just how many events to participate in and must limit how many they can do.
