Unschooling is a form of homeschooling where schooling is incorporated into everyday life. For example, we planted a garden this weekend. We covered soil types, agriculture in the US, geography, science (plant parts, reproduction, ecology, pest control, healthy planting and fertilizing practices) Health and nutrition was covered as well as we debated nutrition.Which led us into social studies and crops and rotations of crops throughout the world. We had a great time doing "School" and planted our garden at the same time. Later we came in and read about different countries, thier history regarding foods and agriculture practices. They do have a curriculum for Math, but some unschoolers incorporate that in thier life lessons as well. We kind of do, as the kids measured and determined planting,seed spacing ect.
But I firmly believe in a solid math foundation so we do extra math.
I definitely call us unschoolers though.
