Huge Round Up of Literature and Theme-Based Unit Studies

If you’ve been around the blog for a while you’ll know that I happen to love unit studies. There are many reasons why. Unit studies allow you to:

  • Include the whole family in learning together
  • Follow the interests of your kids
  • Learn in a hands-on, interest-grabbing way

If you’re interested in using some great unit studies with your kids, this post is a round up of many of my unit study resources. You can find literature-based studies as well as thematic unit studies here. In this post you can find information about creating your own unit study in five easy steps.
