Open Tent Academy
Open Tent Academy is an all-inclusive, virtual environment where homeschoolers (and “after-schoolers”) can take an array of classes, taught by instructors, who are experts in their fields.
During this 10- week class, we will be visiting locations that are considered Wonders of the World.
Using the “Where Is…” series, students will read and virtually visit amazing locations! The series will bring powerful information on people, places and events! These books appeal to both boys and girls and are designed for seasoned readers and reluctant readers alike!
During class, we will discuss the book they read. Additionally, they will share their “book-based” mini project. The mini projects are meant to spark creativity. Projects can be drawings, paintings, Lego bu8ilds, dioramas, poetry or anything your child would like to share to express what they learned the week before. Projects will be shared during the class meeting time, which will encourage public speaking, allowing learners to talk to each other and make friends!
These can be purchased or borrowed from the local library. Please see on anticipated week-by-week when you will need each book:
