It's fun looking back through the blog stats (just the basic ones you can find in Blogger) to determine the top posts of 2011. These are the posts that received the "thumbs up" from Homegrown Learners' readers.
Personally, my favorite post in the list is #3 - just because we learned so much in this artist study and my children STILL talk about John James Audubon.
Comments are still open on these posts, so feel free to comment or just enjoy the reading. Hopefully there are some good links that can be helpful to you.
