5 Fall Unit Study Ideas

Thrift Schooling

Homeschooling children of different ages is challenging. I've tried sticking to grade level appropriate textbooks with history and science. It doesn't work. I'm spending all. day. long. teaching a wide variety of topics, making my head spin. 

I sit down to teach my oldest about explorers, a younger one about the good old U S of A and the kindergartner about community helpers. Before you know it, it's going on three in the afternoon. I haven't even started science yet.

Combining history and science has been a game changer. The kids have become more engaged and feed off one another. I teach each one in an age appropriate manner, but they are all learning about the same subject, at the same time. Not only has this unified our homeschool but saved my sanity. 

This fall, I plan to finish up our core textbooks that we have been trudging faithfully through the past few months and embark on some unit studies, to "take a break" of sorts. Listed below are a few unit study ideas if you are itching to break free from the mundane and try something new this fall.
