Homeschooling: Alaskan Family Shares on Blog

This family is all about exploring – from making their own nets to catch wildlife for study to traveling around the United States and Canada, rediscovering the beauty of North America. They use technology, including a digital camera and the Internet, but they also use a lot of old-fashioned, low-tech methods – notebooks and journals to record their observations, complete with impressive, hand-drawn illustrations. In this way, they can capture images of the gorgeous flora and fauna they are studying, and also produce original educational resources in the process.

It’s a breathtaking peek into how creativity and investigative study can be merged.

A great article about a great blog (and an awesome family).
