Methods of Changing a Lightbulb; Homeschool Style.
Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with 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.
Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed…by Dad.
And there is light.
No less than 5.
1 person to contact HSDLA to see if there is a legal loop hole to change a light bulb without first asking the local department of education.
1 person to contact the co-op to see if there is enough interest to have a field day to watch the changing of the light bulb.
1 person to form a committee to determine whether this is a homeschooling or unschooling type activity.
2 people to actually go out to the store and purchase the light bulb (this should ideally be a 2nd grader and their parent so that the parent can explain about the price per unit item as well as point out the differences in wattage).
Q. How many homeschoolers does it take to change a light bulb?
A. None. The kids would far rather sit in the dark than have yet another conversation about electrical power generation.
