Unschooling in the community

First of all- Happy Valentine’s Day πŸ’œ

Second of all- I am exhausted LOL!

We just had a FULL day of free educational activities. We had taken a break from field trips, so it felt really really good to get back into the community and use its resource!

Missouri Department of Conservation


We took a class today about food chains and food webs in a forest.

First the kids learned via PowerPoint about producers, herbivores, carnivores, and decomospers.

The hands on activity was clever and fun!

Everyone got a puppet and sat in a circle… and a web was created with yarn between the animals (everyone got to choose who/what they ate!


Then the kids made valentines for the forest πŸŒ³πŸ’œ.


We ended the class with a nature hike and Andre found a bone with teeth marks all over it! (Very cool!!)


We then ate lunch at a different park…




…where Eddie got a giant log (little bitty speck) stuck in his eye! I tried to flush it with πŸ’¦ water, but that didn’t work…

So I drove to my sisters house where he took a warm shower and the stick fell out of his eye! Yay! But man was I worried!! 😳 😩 😳 

Then- we went to the library for the MOST amazing fantastic storyteller BOBBY NORFOLK!  He told the story of “Henry Box Brown and the Underground Railroad”.


Google Bobby Norfolk – he’s great!

…then we participated in a STEM activity at the Library.


So, now you see why I’m exhausted… too much fun and learning today πŸ˜ŠπŸ“šπŸ˜Š!

  2. I love how you titled this “unschooling”! We pretty much unschool too but so many people have misconceptions about it. This looks like an amazing day of learning, living and learning to love learning 😊

    • Thank you! I admit that the misconception of unschooling almost kept me from titling the post appropriately. But I reminded myself that this IS unschooling and I’m proud of it… thanks for the support- its appreciated and taken to heart!! 😊😊
