OC Homeschooling

Homeschooling in Orange County, CA

I had the privilege to attend a special preview screening of a new film called Dolphin Tale. It opens nationwide on Sept. 23. The film is based on the true life story of an injured dolphin named Winter who was found off the coast of Florida.  Winter lost her tail fluke and a community of friends and scientists work together to create a prosthetic tail for her.  The film features a homeschooled child as a character and she is played by a Southern California homeschooler.  It's a very family friendly film with themes of family and learning how to deal with loss.  There's also lots of science involved in the film, mainly marine biology, but also a bit of meterology and medical technology.  A website called Homeschool Movie Club has provided a free curriculum that goes with the film that you can download and use.  Homeschool Movie Club is trying to get homeschool groups nationwide to see this film when it opens on Sept. 23.  I highly recommend this film and hope that you will go out and see it too.

 

I also found out that the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, CA is having a kids camp program on Fridays (once a month) beginning on Sept. 23- the day the film opens.  You may want to go to the website and check it out.  The center also does field trips which you can try to arrange by calling them.
