If your family is outdoorsy–enjoys camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, bird watching and the like–then you don’t want to miss the Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine (http://www.tpwmagazine.com/). You can follow them on Facebook or subscribe to RSS feed to read their articles online OR you can subscribe to a print copy of the magazine for just $12/year and get a gift subscription at the same time for $8 more. That’s about as affordable as homeschool educational materials get!
And the Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine is educational. Click the “Keep Texas Wild” Teacher Resources button on the homepage to find lesson plans on Texas Rivers, Buffalo Soldiers, indigenous wildlife, and more.
And, like Texas Highways, they have great sections on Travel and State Parks where you’ll get all sorts of ideas for field trips in your area.
To extend your student’s interest in Texas, I give the Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine two thumbs up!
