Great resource list for summer from +Mary Prather #homeschool  
 
Summer Studies for Your Homeschool

Summer is a time to be more relaxed and delve into a few different things in our homeschool.

After all, learning never really ends, and I find my kids will be at loose ends if we don't have some learning opportunities in place.

The following are summer studies I'm making available to my children - we won't get to ALL of this, but I like to have a lot in my bag of tricks so the kids can pick and choose, and so we can be flexible and follow interests as they arise.
