Part of our philosophy is that reading real books should be coupled with memorable learning experiences. Explorations are learning activities. An exploration could be re-enacting an important battle from history, building a model of the solar system, or doing a real fresco painting on wet plaster. Experiments and expeditions are special explorations focusing on science and field trips, respectively.
