Are you looking to supplement your history studies? Maybe you don’t like to be committed to one history core curriculum for an entire year. Unit studies are a great fit for families that like to mix things up, and be more creative with what they are learning and when.
History is a wonderful subject that leans well towards the unit study method of teaching and learning. If you have children that prefer helping to choose what they are learning, unit studies would be a great fit for your family. I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of popular history unit studies, that are fun and completely FREE to use!
There are lots of different history topics that I have narrowed it down to three main History studies: American History, Ancient History and World History.
Your whole family will enjoy these FREE History Unit Studies:
