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?
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.

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!!
