"'Education is the Science of Relations'; that is, that a child has natural relations with a vast number of things and thoughts: so we train him upon physical exercises, nature lore, handicrafts, science and art, and upon many living books, for we know that our business is not to teach him all about anything, but to help him to make valid as many as may be of––
'Those first-born affinities,
That fit our new existence to existing things.'"

Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education

Journey North

Journey North is a site with a number of project in which your "classroom" can participate. The projects are free, though the "teacher" needs to register. I decided to participate in the project relating to photoperiod (sunlight) called Mystery Class and open it up to our homeschool co-op. The project starts this Monday, February 2.
