You will not want to miss this insight from this mom of 15 who is telling us how to do relaxed unit studies in your homeschool. What I loved about this unique perspective was that a good unit study plan needs a little bit of structure and a whole lot of room to wiggle around and shoot off in all different directions. That is exactly what I think of when I do unit studies that my kids love to do. I only have 2! This mom is a mom to 15!
This article defines Unit Studies as an approach to a theme topic from several angles, encouraging activity and love of learning as well as discipline and responsibility.
It is advised that moms hold their plans loosely with less stress and a lot more fun. Check out these three things that develop unit studies that actually work:
- A “spine” or a basic direction
- Materials and tools readily available so you can take off and explore.
- A way to report and record what you are learning.
