This week's theme at Homeschool Memoirs is unit studies. I love unit studies. The first couple of years of homeschooling, we fell into a nice pattern of doing Sonlight for 6 weeks and then doing a 1-4 week unit study. I loved this system. But as my oldest got older, unit studies became more of a once-a-year affair. Now I often rely on our co-op classes to provide a 10-week unit study!
One of my favorite things about unit studies is preparing them. I love to research dozens of websites and books, glean the best information, and compile it all into my own study. I'm weird like that. Here are some of the unit studies we've done over the years.
- Unit Study: Apples
- Unit Study: Lewis and Clark
- Unit Study: Australia
- Unit Study: The Silver Chair
- Unit Study: The Titanic
