All of my children seem to be super interested in the circus ever since their new favorite movie of all time, The Greatest Showman came out. They are so fascinated with the circus now!
If you have Greatest Showman fans in your house, they may be interested in doing a unit study on the circus! I thought it would be fun to compile printables and resources to create your own circus unit study. These can be used with all ages and done together as a family.
