The website www.homeschoollearning.com offers a free membership for all homeschoolers. The membership allows you to connect with one another, create your own blogs and content, and participate collaboratively in projects the site sponsors.
One of these projects is called “The Alaskan Pioneer Project” where they are following “the Alaskan Pioneer”, a man who is homesteading alone in the Alaskan wilderness for a year. He is already out in the wilderness building his shelter and uploading short updates to his Facebook page (his only means of communication). HomeschoolLearning.com is creating assignments for all of their community to follow along with his adventures. The entire project is free for anyone who wants to join in… you can check it out here:
Fun–and fun learning is forever learning!
