So these are some courses I've found for my ds to use. I'm really focusing on hands-on, real life stuff as he's really engaged in that type of learning (while still doing violin, algebra, writing and lit).
So the courses I've found are:
First, an e-course he's doing now, which has been great!
Real Food Nutrition and Health
We've both learned a ton from this.
Woodshop 101 - this is woodworking with hand tools, not power tools
Drafting, Woodworking, and Small Gasoline Engines
Industrial Arts homeschool curriculum
Homeschool Entrepreneur Course
Any other suggestions?
I would add
agriculture /horticulture(knowing how to grow and preserve and store food...nice history lesson to cause you can have some fun be creative tap maples smoke your own meat...larding...and of course canning and fermenting)
raising small animals (laying hens, meat birds,pig goat or the like)
and maybe some skills like
and / or heavy duty sewing,
(at least exposure to these, perhaps some of these would file neatly into some kind of class title that I am not aware of... perhaps shop?
and since you show an interest in medicinal herbs I would add to that foraging to? I think foraging is the word im lookin for, best to know where to find these things in the wild (as well as growing them yourself ) because lots of lazy people pay big money for herbs...lol
that gets me thinking about
and survival skills also...
