What are cruising families using as curriculums?
There are wide ranges of what a family’s education should look like while traveling the world. It goes from unschooling/worldschooling (looking nothing like “school”) to a curriculum-in-a-box, which looks and feels much like a standard school experience yet outside the classroom. There is no right or wrong way, just different ways for different situations and families. Many families swing between unschooling and sit down workbook work regularly – depending on location, time of year, available resources, change in philosophies, etc.
Again, there is no right or wrong way of educating your family – just YOUR way. Enjoy the ride!!
