  • What Is an Entmoot?

The Entmoot Academy Homeschool site is a repository of homeschooling links grouped by category which can be found in the Compendium of Resources.

Your family has decided to take a trip to France. It's the first time you have been to France and you are all excited. This is your one chance to absorb as much of France and what it has to offer in just one week. The problem is that each one of you has different interests and likes so you must make an intinerary that fits all of your interests and needs. Once you are in France you have to visit all of these fun and exciting places and bring back information and pictures for a scrapbook. You want to have a great trip and bring back plenty of memories!
