Social Studies Comes Alive Outside Your Front Door

A wonderful learning extension for the homeschool curriculum are local business visitations within your own community. Planning visitations to local community businesses is a wonderful way to familiarize your child with community business leaders, the sociology of your own community, career choices and an overall sense of how the city operates.
