A great way to engage the whole family is through gardening. In sustainable urban agriculture, we find ample educational opportunities for all ages.
To begin, with a simple seeding activity we covered language education by incorporating vocabulary. We also dove as deep with a mathematics lesson covering addition, multiplication, and algebraic expressions.
As I homeschool, I sometimes struggle with how to keep all the children engaged throughout our lessons. Having three very different age groups can seem challenging, however, it can be all the more rewarding when things go well as they did today. Dont be afraid to challenge the younger ones to keep up, or ask for an older child’s assistance. When you come at it like a team, everyone can win in learning.
