Unit Studies are becoming increasingly popular in the homeschooling community.
The ability to choose a particular topic or subject to study and having many (if not all) subjects covered within the unit, make it a very nice option!
We will be using many unit studies this upcoming school year. I have created some of my own, and have purchased some as well.
After testing my children to determine their learning styles, I learned that they are mostly taught by sight and by hands on activities. This knowledge combined with multiple grades being taught made the decision to use this type of schooling this year. I am very excited to get started!
Our first unit study will begin next week. I purchased a study from In the Hands of a Child on the US Olympics. I wanted to be sure to cover this event, because it will be another 4 years before the Summer Olympics return. This study will be loads of fun I just know it!
Other topics we will cover using a Unit Study/Unit Method are ~ The Solar System, Human Anatomy, as well as the States of Maine and Texas.
My hope and prayer is that removing some textbooks will lessen some stress and rigidity, providing hands on, sitting on the floor learning time!
Oh! We got rid of our desks too! Dining room table and the floor will be our new learning locations!
What changes are you making to your homeschooling this upcoming year?
