About Lesson Plans Ahoy!

I am impressed

Lesson Plans Ahoy would be a great supplement to anybody who is customizing a curriculum for their children, or even as a supplement to a structured program. I am impressed with its thoroughness, and the index with all the links is very useful.

Can't wait to get back on the boat with my grandson to try some of this

Lesson Plans Ahoy is designed to make the best use of the environment of kids living on boats… I can’t wait to get back on the boat with my grandson to try some of this. And the lesson plans don’t just work for kids being home-schooled on boats. They would also be fun on a short coastal cruise or even on a seaside summertime vacation.
