What counts as social studies?

Recommended Posts

I want to try to "count" home economics (like laundry, cooking -which I know can count as math, cleaning, etc.) for my 8 year old son as homeschool somehow. Would I be able to list it under social studies? Or is that stretching it? Thanks!

It's my belief that we should keep paperwork and documentation to a minimum, especially in elementary and middle school. If you're already covering the areas of reading/literature, writing/composition, math, science, and social studies in other ways, there's no need to document home economics.

 

Learning home economics is a very useful skill (and as you said, can often be documented under the other areas), but you don't have to document it separately. I recommend that you document only what's required by law, and use all the time you save to do other fun learning activities.

 

Warmly,

Dianna
