Homeschool Memoirs # 23


This week’s theme is going to be on unit studies. Some people are really big on unit studies, others aren’t, and some use them as their primary learning tool. I think they’re great a fun way to encompass everything in what you’re studying. please share your favourite unit study and if you’ve never done one before share one you’d like to do.

I post quite often on the unit studies we are doing so I thought I would post some of my favorite links and rescources here.  I love lapbooks and Evan Moor Pockets of learning.  Last year we did a lot of notebooking.  I am very eclectic when I comes to planning these and pull from all different areas.  Some times too many!    I am teaching in our co-op next week with the preschoolers so I am planning a mini unit study on Groundhog's Day.  I found some of the cutest activities. 

1.  They are going to make a pop up Groundhog puppet

2.  Then I got a bunch of ideas from

        Tracing the kids silhouettes/shadows

         Guess the shadow

          Musical shadows

3.  I also love they have some great craft ideas as well.

I willl post pictures later in the week of our activities.
