The Homeschool Freshman Fifteen – Hifalutin Homeschooler

Movies and documentaries are often as (or more) effective that a boring chapter in a textbook. They’re not always completely accurate, but that gives you a springboard to assign research and more discussion. Plus, viewing movies frees up hands for… You guessed it, food!

Yes, THIS!!!!

Partly because so much of the stuff for kids is so poorly done– there isn’t even anything you can use to do more research, while documentary videos do have that, if only to make noise while they do the long, slow pan over neat stuff.  (Kind of like the opposite of transcripts vs clips for political speeches.)
