20 Deep Learning Activities Found in Everyday Life
Whether you homeschool already, you are considering homeschooling, you might think about it down the road, or even if you are not considering homeschooling but have little ones, this is a wonderful resource for you.
This ebook is all about every day learning activities. I am talking about activities found naturally within a day that are completely FULL of learning. They emerge entirely on their own, we just need to slow down to see them.
Let’s look at something as simple as making a grocery list.
This is, of course, full of literacy learning. It can also be full of sorting (by aisle/department or by food group). We can also introduce the idea of price rounding so we can get an approximate running total of our groceries. We can set a budget that we need to stick to, working on some big math concepts. We can add in some flyers or coupons, developing both literacy and numeracy at once.
Once you stop to really think about a task, you can see so many opportunities for learning!

I’ve bought a few of your unit studies and love the way you’ve compiled things and the ways you provide options for learning extensions. I run a licensed family daycare and feel like I’m able to add an extra level of quality and engagement to what I offer to families, thanks to your inspiration.
Just wanted to share with you how much fun we’re having with the human body unit study. My 5 yo was able to correct his buddy from down the street about what your rib cage is and what organ it protects and what its function is!! My 13 yo is my teaching assistant this year and she’s even enjoying them! Although, don’t tell her that - she’s too cool for this little kid stuff 🙄😁😂 (The Human Body)
Your unit gets to the point and is in a language kids will actually connect with! AND it’s not full of write a paragraph, write, write, write and more writing! (Reptiles)
I am currently using this for our homeschool unit on dinosaurs. It involves little to no preparation, which is a plus with a toddler around. It is very engaging and hands on which I love, and it keeps my five year old engaged with room to grow into should we pull it out in future years. He looks forward to this daily. (Dinosaurs)
I used this resource when I home schooled my nephews. They both loved all the things that we learned about dinosaurs! It had so many great learning activities that were hands on and engaging. (Dinosaurs)
My students love rocks and they loved this resource. I have these Geodes that were just waiting to be broken and this allowed us to learn about them while we broke them. The kids had awesome day. (Rocks & Gems)
