How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Aw! Summer! Oh, how I love summer!

My family and I just returned from our annual trip to the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Just because we were on vacation did not mean that the learning stopped. We just learned in a different way. We spent more time noticing our environment and taking in its beauty.  It reminded me of how learning should be organic; based on the need of the individual.

Equipped with this kid friendly guide, we explored. This became my son's daily outfit because, 
"Adventures are out there!"

We searched for raspberries and wild strawberries, collected rocks and insects, fished, and enjoyed the water.
All in all, it was a great family vacation.  How did you spend your summer vacation?

Here's a writing activity your students could complete to share about their summer adventures.
