How does a homeschooler change a light bulb?

(borrowed from a T-shirt, but I love it!)

How does a homeschooler change a lightbulb?

  • First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library. The kids make models of light bulbs, read the biography of Thomas Edison, and do a skit based on his life.
  • Then, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles.
  • Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs, as well as prices, and figure out how much change they’ll get back if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a $5 bill.
  • On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the $5 bill.
  • Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed.
  • And there is light!
