Real life connections
I saw a post on the Unschooling New Hampshire Facebook group that was a good example of a person making a meaningful connection. I loved how it came about in such a natural and fun way. That is how learning happens. In this case, there was curiosity, questions, discussion, play and connections were made. Pretty cool!

Just have to share a little smile (actually a big one) from our day. Today our 12 yos wanted to look something up on the globe. We started looking at the continents, hemispheres, etc.Then he asked about the numbers. So we talked about longitude and latitude and coordinates. He seemed a bit bored -I tend to love explaining lol. Well, I was just watching him play his Minecraft, when he got excited about finding the exact center of his world on his map. Wow!! Coordinates!! What perfect timing!! He got to see the very thing we were discussing for himself!! Soooo cool!!!
