Fun At Fort Ross, California; Russian Fort Combines Fun & Education

Provided By: 

March 6, 2010 by RA Manseau · 1 Comment  

I took my girls to northern California on a camping vacation. We had so much fun. We saw the Giant Red Wood Trees, we saw Lake Tahoe, we went white water rafting on the American River, we explored Alcatraz and rode a trolley car in San Francisco. We spent almost two weeks up there fooling around. There are always special moments that stand out in your mind when you get home. One of our special moments from that trip was also one of the least expensive things we did.

I took the girls on a scenic drive one afternoon up the coast on Highway 1, because a nice lady I met in San Francisco recommended that I take the girls to see Fort Ross. I really did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The girls saw it first and once they figured out that it looked like a real old fort they could not wait for me to get the car parked.

Fort Ross Tower “The fort is situated atop a mesa which is surrounded by ravines which abut the sea. It is constructed of redwood planks (there is no other wood used in any of the structures) and forms a palisade. It is four varas high, uniformly, and is surmounted by a beam set with pointed stakes intended to dissuade any assault. It has three gates: one to the northeast, one to the west and one to the southeast…” Diary of Fr. Mariano Payeras, 1822.

What a fantastic place this was. I have never been any where quite like it. I almost kept up with the girls as they jumped out of our pickup and took off looking for a docent or a sign that would tell them what we found. It didn’t take long for us to learn that this was an old Russian fort, Fort Ross .

Fort Ross was established by the Russian American Company in 1812. The girls found the docent they were searching for and received a personal tour. The place was fascinating. I think my oldest enjoyed pretending to light the cannons and blow her sister to kingdom come the most. The girls ran from building to building and cannon to cannon in pure delight. Education should always be that much fun.

Fort Ross was built to support the Russian settlements in what is now Alaska. Unfortunately, only one building is original, the others have been reconstructed. But the reconstruction was done very well and you would never know if the docent didn’t tell.

There is nothing like a fort to bring out the imagination. What better place to have fun than a true historical landmark. Fort Ross is educational and incr...

Global Wildlife Center, Folsom, Louisiana (The Perfect Home-School Field Trip)

Provided By: 

July 15, 2010 by RA Manseau ·  

I can’t exactly drive to Africa. But I can drive to Folsom, Louisiana! I am always on the lookout for great field trips for my home-schooled kids. One of the best parts of home-schooling is the ability to incorporate school with vacations. And, the Global Wildlife Center in Folsom Louisiana is a great destination!

The best description of this wonderful wildlife preserve comes straight from their Mission Statement :

“We seek to be a center of excellence in education; to create a perfect place in which threatened and endangered wildlife, from around the world, live and flourish in a free-roaming natural environment. A place where children, adults, students, and teachers embrace the values of active conservation and wildlife preservation through hands-on education and first-person sensory experience.

Get ready for a wild adventure at the largest totally free-roaming wildlife preserve of its kind in the country! The Global Wildlife Center in Folsom, Louisiana is home to over 4,000 exotic, endangered, and threatened animals from all over the world.”

In preparation for your visit to the Global Wildlife Center take the time to download and print the lesson plan activity sheets.

This massive wildlife preserve in Folsom, Louisiana is just one hour north of New Orleans!

This whole area is a treasure-trove of history. In addition to the Global Wildlife Center and the museums and galleries of New Orleans, the magni...

RV Roadschooling

Provided By: 

February 28, 2010 by Dana T. · 5 Comments  

boy doing school work

While we have always homeschooled our children, now that we are full-time r.v.ers, we have found that Roadschooling (homeschooling on the road) presents some unique challenges as compared to when we homeschooled in a sticks & bricks. 

 Being on the road has given us a chance to visit some wonderful historic locations that we would not have been able to otherwise afford to go to without our r.v. We love to tailor our curriculum to where we are visiting; especially for history, writing, and science, but traveling full-time makes it difficult to always have, on-hand, the learning tools that we enjoyed in our house. We have found having a laptop and printer on-board indispensable to our destination tutoring! Of course, if you are going for a short trip, it would be very easy to find applicable information before you leave home, print it out there, and take it along. There are some great websites that provide details and worksheets about states , historical destinations , and elementary hands-on science . My children, for the most part, enjoy worksheets, so in addition to downloading interesting online worksheets, I also watch out for fun workbooks about where we are visiting. 

History of Texas Museum

History of Texas Museum

Last month when we were in Texas, I found a great workbook at the Bob Bullock History of Texas Museum gift shop. Because I have multiple ages, I went through the workbook and marked each page that I thought the kids might enjoy with a post-it flag. On the flag, I wrote how many copies of that page I wanted depending on which children it was age appropriate for. A quick trip to Staples, and we were set for some fun (and inexpensive) learning about a new-to-us area.

Many students use the Internet for classroom research, and travelers use it to find out about a possible destination. Roadschooling brings both of these together. In addition to finding out about the surrounding tourist sights and searching for campgrounds , we like to find factual information on the historical places that we are interested in touring. Last week we visited Tombstone, AZ, the sight of the legendary gunfight between the Earp brothers with Doc Holiday, and the lawless Clanton Gang at the OK Corral. On our way to Tombstone, we searched for a website about the deadly match, and read about the gunfight aloud; we also learned a lot about the founding of the town, including the source of it’s name. The kids had more interest in the location knowing a bit of it’s history, we had a better idea of how to prioritize our time there based on what details we found intriguing, and the kids had a jump-start on what they would need to know to earn their Jr. Ranger badges.

Homeschoolers tend to be bookworms (and we are!) but now that we are schooling out of an rv, we are greatly limited as to both space and weight. We don’t have much room for books, but even if we did, the weight facto...
