Any time of year is great for homeschool travel because school can be flexible but when do you make up your school work if you travel during school time? We like to get a little bit of work done ahead of our trip and make up a little bit after the trip so we don't have to take school work with us. We have in the past taken books and workbooks with us thinking we would do some school on the road but it hardly ever works out. My kids enjoy reading fun books in the car so I consider that bonus school work but our serious work we save for before we leave or after we get back. I'm curious if anyone has gotten it to work with doing actual school work on the road and how did you make it work? What kind of school work is best to take with you and how do you make the time to do it?

One of my favorite things about homeschool is that everyday and every place that we are in can be an opportunity to learn. When we travel we often try to incorporate educational activities into our trips. We have gone to many museums, zoos and aquariums on our family travels. We also visit national or state parks whenever we get a chance. We have been to Mesa Verde, the Black Canyon, Colorado National Monument, Zion, Estes Park, Bandelier National Monument and more. We would love to visit Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon someday. What are some of your favorite road trip field trips for your homeschool kids?
