How To Homeschool When You Live Off The Grid

Are you dreaming of moving your family off the grid, but worrying about schooling your kids?  While some off grid families do send their kids to traditional schools in nearby towns, many off-gridders we know are homeschoolers.

LEARN HOW TO HOMESCHOOL LEGALLY IN YOUR AREA

The laws vary from country to country, state to state, province to province, and even from region to region. In some places, homeschooling is highly regulated, and in other places, it's completely hands-off.

LEARN HOW TO HOMESCHOOL WITH A  CURRICULUM .TO START

Using a structured curriculum can help you feel more confident about sticking to a homeschool schedule. It can help you cover the basics that educators feel are important for a child based on age.

All this means that our homeschool day (and our lives) look pretty different from many other homeschoolers. And it is important to us that the kids learn as many outdoor, wilderness living, and homesteading skills as possible.

OUR HOMESCHOOL INCLUDES OFF GRID LIVING SKILLS FOR KIDS

OUTDOOR AND HOMESTEADING WITH OUTSCHOOL

They're part of the daily rhythms of our lifestyle. And each of these activities gives the kids a chance to apply their "book learning" to a hands-on activity.

If you're living off the grid up north or in a really remote area, it can be tough to get your hands on the homeschooling resources you'll need if you wait until the last minute.
