given to each child with requirements
based on the individual. These things could
be done by any student and measured by
time constraints or the number of repetitions accomplished.
Physical activity of various kinds can
also be included in the category of physical
education. Riding bikes, hiking, swimming,
gymnastics, roller blading, and skiing can
all count as physical education.
All children need physical activity of some
kind. You, as the homeschooling parent/
guardian, know the best way to accomplish that for your child and your family.
Some may choose the physical activity to
be a sport, some may just go on lots of bike
rides or walks, and some may get creative
and come up with some fun, unique ways
to keep their child physically active—just do
something! Our children need to be active
whether they get school credits for it or not!

I want to tell you again how very much I have appreciated this curriculum. It has
been wonderful and my son has loved it. It is probably one of the best things I have
used in 17 years of homeschooling. -- Sandy Y.
To say my daughter loved this study is an understatement. She has treasured it.
This study spurred her on to read other great works, … understand literary terms,
think about a writer's intent, and set a personal goal of becoming a writer … This
curriculum really fed her soul … I just wanted to thank you for the years of study
that went into your books and for sharing your passion with my kids in a way that
I have not been gifted. Their school experience and their lives will be richer for it.
