天热出行,旅行学习两不误

本文属阅读资料



   And who says you need a classroom to learn? This week my kids and I have done so many fun and educational things together I am in wonderment about why I didn’t take this approach before. My son requested that homeschooling commence immediately…no break for summer. This is just fine with me as it allowed me the opportunity to show him first hand how he can in fact learn without sitting at a desk doing drills or being lectured at. I included pictures from my flickr stream if you are interested.
   First up we went to visit honest to goodness castles right in Ohio. They are called The Piatt Castles, built by two wealthy brothers. They were named after the Mac-A-Cheek valley where they reside, Mac-A-CheePiatt Castlek and Mac-O-Chee. The names of the castles, the valley, and the stream that runs through it are all derived from the word, Macachack, the name of a Shawnee village that was located there in the late 1700s.
   It was a great experience getting to tour both castles, one of which has most of the original furnishings. One of them even has a secret underground passage found only 2 years ago. It led from the house to the conservatory. Both castles had their own chapels too, which was incredible to see.
   My kids and I learned about Ohio history and about how people used to live in the 1800s. The indoor toilet at the larger castle was fascinating. I also loved the fact that for each section or room in the castles there was an activity table set up for children to play and draw. Some of the activities included building castles, creating a mosaic, and playing with old fashioned toys.
   Next up we went to a classic car show downtown and to The Popcorn Museum. My oldest son is a huge car buff so the car show was a big treat for him. He also got to pose next to the Speedracer car so he was a pretty happy camper. His great-uncle had a car on display too.
The Popcorn Museum was fun too. Highlights included seeing a huge collection of popcorn wagons, getting to see a train exhibit, and my son’s fave…getting to see a stuffed horse named Prince Imperial that belonged to Napoleon the third and lived in the 1800s. The horse was absolutely gorgeous and had a mane that was so long it dragged the ground by several feet if left down. He had the world’s longest mane.
   The people at The Popcorn Museum really rock…they know their Marion history and that are happy to tail you around and answer any and all questions you have about just about anything. When you leave everyone gets a bag of of fresh popped popcorn.
   Next up we visited The Harding House, which is the home of former US President Warren G. Harding. I have toured it several times…very interesting. My daughter also got to visit a little one room schoolhouse nearby too. All of these adventures have been getting marked with a sticker on a board game we got from our local visitor’s bureau….just something they cooked up to make summer learning fun.
   Yesterday we went to COSI, a hands on Science Center. My 9 year old nephew said it was the best science museum he had ever been too and since this kid has been to science museums in probably 5 continents that is saying something. It was REALLY fun and educational. The highlight for me was the CSI exhibit. Basically we walked into a crime scene…a skeleton in the desert, we had to look for clues and then go to the lab where we evaluated 8 pieces of evidence. We compared bullet casings, matched DNA, matched hair samples to the species, and looked under a microscope to identify pollen. Then we went into the coroner’s office to view our deceased on a slab and determine cause of death and then finally we visited Grissom’s office to report our findings. SO FUN!!!!
   Other points of interest included a bottle rocket, a mini submarine, a news station where kids get to be a part of the action, a 45 minute movie about climbing the Alps, the recycling exhibit, and robotic trucks the kids had a blast with.
   They also had MANY videos you could watch of surgeries and medical procedures. I personally LOVE that…I wanted to be conscious for my colon resection even - they said NO. We watched a birth, a postmortem sperm retrieval, and gasp…a circumcision. It was beyond gross and made my nephew almost yack. I think all parents should have to watch that video before they decide to get their boys cut (something I am against). I can guarantee after watching NO ONE would have it done. It is a horrific, ghastly process.
   Well, this made for one eventful and fun week…and we aren’t done yet. This homeschool stuff rocks the planet. ;)



  谁说学习只能在教室进行?这周我和我的孩子们一起做了许多教育游戏,非常愉快。我不禁想,为什么我没有早点这么做。儿子要求立即在开展家庭教学,整个夏天都不停。我很乐意,这是个好机会,可以直观地让他知道,不用坐在桌旁无聊地钻洞,也不用听某个老师枯燥的课的学习方法。我选用了一些“我闪光的梦想”里的图片。
   首先,我们去了俄亥俄州的“honest to goodness”城堡,被称做“ Piatt ”,是有富裕的兄弟俩建造的,他们的名字来源于他们居住的 Mac-A-Cheek山谷,一个叫Mac-A-Cheek,另一个叫Mac-O-Chee。城堡、山谷和山谷间溪流的名字都取自Macachack,18世纪晚期位于此地的肖尼市的一个村庄。
   参观这两个城堡非常有趣,其中一个保留了大量古家具。2年前,人们发现有一个城堡下面有一条秘道,从大厅通往温室。两个城堡都有自己的礼拜堂,非常华美。
   我和我的孩子们一起学习了俄亥俄的历史和19世纪人们的生活方式。较大的城堡内的洗手间很迷人。每隔一段路,每个房间里都有供孩子玩耍画画的游乐区,这一点我也很喜欢。孩子们可以堆城堡、拼马赛克和玩古式玩具。
   接下来,我们去市中心看了老爷车展,然后去了爆米花博物馆。我的大儿子是个超级车迷,车展正合他的胃口。他获得了和急速赛车合影的机会,高兴的很。他叔祖父也参与了车展。
爆米花博物馆也很有趣。最精彩的是爆米花马车大集合、火车展览、和我儿子的最爱——19世纪拿破仑三世爱马的填充玩具版。这匹马很高贵,鬃毛如果放下来,可以在地上铺开机英尺,可以说是世界上最长的鬃毛。
   爆米花博物馆的工作人员很有趣……他们熟知当地历史,并且很乐意带你到处晃,回答关于任何事情的任何问题。当你离开的时候还会给你一袋新鲜的爆米花。
   之后,我们去了美国总统之一哈丁的住宅。我已经来过几次了……非常有趣。我女儿也去过附近的一间小校舍。我们在当地旅游局举办的一次烹饪游戏中得到了一本便签本。不过食物……作用是为了使夏季学习活动更有趣啦。
   昨天我们去了COSI,科技中心的一个分支。我9岁大的侄子说这是他见到过最好的科技博物馆,由于这孩子去过5大洲无数的博物馆,所以他的发言还是很有分量的。确实非常有趣并且有教育意义。我个人最喜欢的是CSI 展览。我们走进了犯罪现场……沙漠中的一具骷髅,我们必须寻找线索,带回实验室,找出8个证据。我们比较了子弹轨迹、比对了DNA、头发样本以及在显微镜下观察了花粉。然后我们来到了角落的办公室,看幻灯片,判断死因,最终去Grissom的办公室报告。太有趣了!
   其他有趣的还有一个瓶子做的火箭、迷你潜水艇、一个全新的能让孩子们都亲身参与的活动区、45分钟长关于登上阿尔卑斯山的电影、再循环展览和孩子们喜欢的机器人卡车。
   也有许多关于手术和药物治疗过程的影片。我很喜欢那些……我想在结肠切除手术中保持清醒——但他们说不行。我们看了一个孩子出生的过程、死后精液的激活和……割包皮。那个太……了以致我侄子几乎笑出来。我想所有父母都应该在决定让自己的孩子割包皮(我个人很反对)前看看这部片子。我敢保证在看了之后,没有人还会那么做了。这是个相当可怕的过程。
   好了,这是我精彩又有趣的一周小结……我们还没结束。这个家庭学习计划回让地球都震动的。
