THIS JOKE WAS SENT TO ME BY OUR PIONEER PARENTS VALENTINE & ANNA COELHO WHO GOT IT FROM GERARD DELANEY. I COULDN'T STOP SMILING. ENJOY, HOMESCHOOLING FAMILY!
Q: How does a homeschooler change a light bulb?
A: First, mom checks out three books at the library on electricity, 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 and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for Rs. 24 and pay with a fifty-rupee note. On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Mahatma Gandhi, as his picture is on the fifty-rupee bill. Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed. And there is light.
