World Book Encyclopedia

Submitted by: Thereza Dos Santos

Materials: iPhone, World Book Encyclopedia, my 11 year old

I’ve devised some of my own homeschooling for my 11 year old. This is the World Book Encyclopedia Exercise. When my parents downsized, I got the complete set. For this exercise, I pick a topic, like Portugal, and type out 8 questions. She has to locate the topic and and find the answers. And she likes it! There’s a connection to little me, who used these books for research, and her grandfather, who was ALWAYS pulling down a volume for reference and is no longer with us.
