Product Description

Whether you’re setting off on a summer cruise, crossing an ocean, or committing to a year or more of home schooling, this book will make learning relevant and enjoyable. Lesson Plans Ahoy! (third / Kindle edition) includes detailed instructions for units in Science (model the lunar cycle, dissect a fish, and try chemistry), Math (graph resource use and study geometry), Writing (develop journal, non-fiction, and creative writing skills), History (bring the voyages of Columbus and Captain Cook to life), Navigation (compass use, hands-on mapping, and more), and Physical Education (study heart rate and exercise). All are designed to be fun, practical, and relevant.

The book also includes extensive sections on the How-To’s of home schooling on a boat (from choosing a program to designing your own curriculum and keeping students motivated); age-appropriate adaptations for ages 4-12 in detail; tips for cross-curricular links and enrichment; suggested resources to support learning, and materials required (selected for practicality). An appendix links the units in the book to national and state curricula of the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada, so that home schooling students can keep pace with expectations in their home systems.
