As our homeschool children turn into preteens and teens, we see a need to help them learn about the world in preparation for their upcoming lives as adults: hands-on experiences, to see the poverty, the need, and take part in bringing hope and healing. Working with established groups, creating your own, or volunteering individually, there are always opportunities for service. History, people, field trips, and careers. 4th grade & up.
Desiring to teach her children the wonderful art of floral arrangement and crafts, along with making wreaths ~ all in a systematic approach, Kym created the Floral Adventure! Unit Study. In her research, she found that colleges teach this type course as "Horticulture 352: Flower Arranging." This course covers enough for a one-semester high school credit. With marketing plans & practice, it becomes a one-year high school credit.
