I was doing some research on KONOS and unit studies like KONOS and came across this funny:


How many home schoolers does it take to change a light bulb?

How does a homeschooler change a lightbulb?
First, mom checks three books on electricity out of the library, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life.

Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping it up by dipping their own candles.

Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five dollar bill.

On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill.

Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed.
And there is light.

That is hysterical!  And exactly why I don't do unit studies.  I am not a rabbit trail, spur-of-the-moment kind of person....I can't believe I just admitted that...what kind of homeschool mom am I? LOL!

Don't worry Rebecca, I am not really a rabbit trail kinda person either ;) Slowly, slowly, I am getting better at going off on the well worn path to follow the kids interests, but I have to make a conscience effort to allow it to happen ;) LOL!!
