Homeschool educational mobiles are a great way to learn facts about different things. This is a fun way of learning. If you are homeschooling with Units then this would be a great addition to your Units. But if you’re not using Units, this is still a great way to teach facts about different things.
There are many ways to create mobiles. You can use sticks, paper towel holders, clothes hangers, etc. Here is an example of a mobile:
Take two sticks and crisscross them. Take a piece of yarn or string and tie the sticks together. Then cut out your shapes and write the facts on them. Punch a hole in the top of the shape and run a string through it and tie it to the stick. I will go in to more detail about the cut outs below. But that is your basic mobile. You can use paper towel holders, clothes hangers, and more.
