January 27, 2006, Newsletter Issue #20: A Social Studies Activity for Home Schooled Children

Tip of the Week

Teaching social studies advice: Home schooling moms have a great social studies project built right in to your living and schooling environment - your own family. Teaching your children about their own cultural and ethnic background is a very meaningful lesson. Make a family tree and talk about how and when your ancestors came to America. Have them write a report on their country of origin and cook some ethnic meals. Interview relatives of different ages to gather family stories, photos and memorabilia.
