Unit Studies
Unit studies are a way to integrate many subjects into one topical unit, using one idea, subject, or topic to explore different approaches to study. In general, a topic is chosen and is studied, learning history, science, math, writing, reading, and other subjects while exploring the single topic. Unit studies work well for multi-age homeschoolers, for those looking for a creative way to learn, and for anyone who want real hands-on, real-world learning.
