Those who follow our adventures in homeschooling know that we utilize travel as part of our education plan.  I often refer to our adventures as roadschooling or world schooling depending on where we went and what we did.  Roadschooling is simply the act of learning on the road. Learning occurs in more than just the four walls of a school or a house. Some of our previous world schooling adventures can be seen here and our last roadschooling adventure can be read here.  This time our adventures were to the Savannah, Georgia area due to the family moving there just this past April.

Here is what we did with our extended family in the Savannah, Georgia area:

  • Telfair Museums (Jepson Center for the Arts, Telfair Academy, and the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters–for those going, Owens-Thomas House cannot accommodate large groups unscheduled and you will need to call ahead to make arrangements)
  • Colonial Park Cemetery (many historic graves are marked and historical markers throughout)
  • Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (worth listening to the architecture tour)
  • Lafayette Square
  • Telfair Square
  • Wright Square
  • Oglethorpe Square
  • Savannah River Street
    Ways Station Train Stop
  • J.F. Gregory Park
  • Fort Pulaski National Monument (can earn a junior ranger badge, we happened to be there during their Veteran’s Day special events)
  • Tybee Island Beach
  • Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center
  • Tivoli River Kayak launch
  • Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church

I considered this trip to Georgia more of a roadschooling trip than a world schooling trip due to the shortness of the trip and the fact that we have family living there now.  I also have to give thanks to my BIL for being a great tour guide and a great planner. We both came up with lists of things to see and do and divided them up nicely across the days.  It was a great mix of history and outdoor adventures. In addition, we had the grandparents visiting from WI at the same as we were there so we could do an early Thanksgiving. The cousins had a blast together.  There is way more to explore with them, so, we will be back!
