A Year of Free and Fascinating Unit Studies

Unit studies provide flexibility and an alternative to traditional textbook learning. They often save time by combining all the subjects into a single study. However, putting one together can be a tremendous amount of work. That’s why we are so excited to share a year of free homeschool unit studies with you.

Some Helpful Advice before You Begin

Each of these studies will take your family on a different adventure. Some are more math intensive, while others focus on literature. However, every study is multi-disciplined. These are perfect for a short diversion or a year’s worth of school. You can choose to spend just two weeks in a particular topic, or stretch it longer and dive really deep. If using this style of schooling, be sure to track which subjects you have touched on and how long you spent on each topic/project. This will make end of year record keeping seamless, and ensure that you are covering all your bases as far as core subject.

    I love to read your blog. We did our own unit studies instead in order to liven things up this year. Back in mid September I decided to try a new unit study Macbeth. I used rather a lot of teaching techniques in addition during my lessons each week. For example I got an entire class to write up a essay on opinion of Macbeth on top of that. And I also taught the little ones the very basics of the whole play in question too.

    I covered the play act by act to make things that much simpler overall. It was the best approach. I had a old textbook which was ultimately used as a free guide. They worked on all four key skills. I had them read out parts of Macbeth to start off with. They made character profiles and mini summaries. They even had to take part in lively discussions on themes of the play and so on. Numbers were used to make lists of key topics to refer back to along the way. It was a lot of fun.

    I used the colour coding method. I like flip charts. And I love the mind mapping technique.
