Challenge your Teens with this Road Trip Scavenger Hunt

As homeschooling families, we spend a lot of time in the car. A LOT of time. For longer road trips, it's easy to have your teen plug-in" for the duration. But what if you want some family bonding time you remember from your childhood vacations? 

If you're traveling with older kids, then you know how difficult it can be to find things to do in the car that don't revolve around electronics. That's why we created this Road Trip Scavenger Hunt with 50 things to search for that will challenge your middle school student.

Before your next long car trip, download copies for your family and challenge each other to see who can find the most items.

Not a fan of Shakespeare, but know you need to include his works in your home school?

Here are some great tools you can use. Be warned, you might find that you're more of a fan than you think!
I love Shakespeare.  LOVE Shakespeare, and I've been slowly working to introduce him to the kids, and this is a great resource (not to mention the super cool Shakespeare figure).  #homeschooling #ihsnet
