We’ve been vacationing in Lake Tahoe before we start the next school year. Yesterday, we took a gondola ride up Heavenly Mountain and saw some spectacular views.
We stopped mid-hike for a mini physics lesson. We watched the waves travel in the boundary rope, noting that they were taller when we tugged harder and that they quickly flattened out as they traveled back and forth between the poles.
This reminded me of one of my favorite reasons to homeschool. The world is our classroom. And, in this case, the classroom is a beautiful place to be!
I learned something, too. I’ve been coming to Tahoe every winter since I was a kid, and we all know what a great ski destination it is. But this is my first summer visit. FYI: summer is way better!
