In honor of the 50th birthday (!!) of Keanu Reeves in September 2014, Unschool Rules offers a homeschooling unit study on his most famous movies, The Matrix trilogy.
We don’t do grade levels, but if you’re wondering what radical unschooling 9th grade-ish style looks like, here’s our 14-year-old daughter’s plan.
Find out more about actors William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan of Star Trek: The Original Series, all of whom were born in March, in this homeschooling and unschooling study guide.
One of the “learning kicks” we’ve been on this year has been chemistry, specifically its history (from alchemy to the present) and the periodic table. Here are some of the coolest books, movies, trips and more we’ve incorporated into our learning!
In honor of his 57th birthday in July 2013, Unschool RULES shares some fun facts about Tom Hanks, as well as how his movies have sparked learning.
In honor of Harrison Ford’s 71st birthday in July 2013, we’re sharing how his roles in the Indiana Jones and Star Wars series have entertained our family AND made us think!
In honor of his 52nd birthday later this month, I’m celebrating the life of Michael J. Fox, and sharing how his Back to the Future movies have inspired learning in our family!
Sarah’s got a new TV obsession: MythBusters. She’s having a great time watching them blow things up, but she’s learned a ton as well!
In honor of what would have been his 105th birthday in May 2013, we celebrate the life of Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, and suggest some ideas to help you learn more about him!
One of Sarah’s current passions is for all things James Bond. See what she thinks about Skyfall and Goldfinger, and whether she’d recommend the movies for kids.
