Q: How does a homeschooler change a light bulb?

A: First, mom checks all the books on electricity out of the library. Then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison, and do a skit based on his life. Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles. Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices. They decide to buy compact fluorescent light bulbs that save electricity as well as the environment. They figure out how much change they’ll get back if they buy three bulbs for $3.99 and pay with a ten dollar bill. On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Alexander Hamilton as his picture is on the ten dollar bill. Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed. And there is light.
