A Map-Themed Family Movie Night
One of the many things that I love about Brave Writer is the fact that the Brave Writer Lifestyle includes family movie night. I learned early on in my homeschooling career that Family Movie Night can be educational, so I was over-the-moon to see that Brave Writer meshed with my educational philosophy. I knew I had to include Brave Writer as a part of our homeschool curriculum.
Lately, our family has been a bit map-obsessed. When my children are passionate about a topic, I like to create opportunities for learning and so I put together a map skills unit study, and this unit study fit very well with the Brave Writer Lifestyle, as it provided countless opportunities for reading, writing, storytelling, and conversation.
I love to end our unit studies with a movie or documentary that fits the unit study theme. Family movie nights can be educational and fun… and you’re making precious memories, too!
Today, I’m going to share some ideas for a map-themed family movie night.
