There are No Better Lessons
than Real-Life Lessons

On the road, lessons to explore and discover are plentiful. We will learn subjects from social studies to science, language arts and mathematics to health and safety on a hands-on basis.

We will keep a journal and make drawings that describe our observations. Absorbing nature, reading maps, meeting new people and exploring the country will contribute to a real-life learning experience.
