Travel to London...

Jump to last reply

Hi all! Newbie here...will post on London forum, too. We are a homeschooling family that is planning our first "educational" historical trip to England in September. We plan to take advantage of all the free museums, Buckingham Palace/Mews tour, visit Hadrian's Wall (we're studying a Latin program that uses historical references from that part) and try to get to the Roman Baths.

I have some ideas to keep this educational...have each child carry a travel journal that they can use. We've been reading several books aloud set in England, "Robin Hood" by Howard Pyle, finished The Chronicles of Narnia series, Mary Poppins, Door in the Wall, Adam of the Road and others.

Wondered if anyone else had some creative ideas how to maximize our first overseas trip as a family. We plan on going to Paris/Rome on the next trip (in 2 years) and hopefully to Greece and Egypt for another trip...our kids are 11, 8 & 7...so by the the time they fly the coop we hope to have given them a good understanding of world history.

Thanks!
Tara
