Homesteading Lessons for Homeschoolers brings two of my favorite topics together! As homeschoolers we love natural learning and lessons that give life skills. Homesteading is part of our day to day lives and so much learning happens in homesteading lessons like math, planning, home economics, etc. You can bring homesteading lessons into your home even if you’re not a homeschooler and Angela England can show you how!
I was privileged to interview Angela England when I was pod-casting. Angela is a homeschooling mother of 5, and a backyard homesteader. She is also the author of Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) and a popular blogger on The Untrained Housewife.
Homesteading Lessons for Homeschoolers
Angela and I are talking about how to use homesteading lessons in your homeschooling. Angela explains how homeschoolers (or after-schoolers) can use their homestead to teach your kids important skills for life. She even has a free guide available as a companion to her book. The guide will take you through the book and using it as a text for your homesteading lessons. Super easy to use and adaptable for all ages, it is an awesome supplement to whatever curriculum you are already using. The guide gives homesteading lessons that include study prompts, discussion questions, hands-on activities and even field trip suggestions.
