All About Unit Studies

As you know, there are many methods of homeschooling. We have already discussed classical, and Charlotte Mason. Today, I want to share with you all about Unit Studies.

What are Unit Studies?

Unit studies allow a homeschooler to focus on one topic for a set period of time. During this time the students will learn many subjects together. This could include History, Science, Literature, Art and more. For example, a unit study on horses may involve the history of horses, the anatomy of horses, and learning to draw a horse. The students would read books on horses, and maybe even visit a horse farm. All learning will center on that one topic, but will incorporate many different subjects.
