Homeschool Unit Study Curriculum Index

Print Friendly

One popular homeschooling method is the unit study approach.

If you are tired of the textbook approach and want to try something new, I would suggest a good unit study curriculum. I’ve said before that one of the nice things about the homeschool movement is that many homeschoolers wrote their own curriculum and then published it for others to use. You can benefit from all the great choices!Prairie Primer by Margie Gray 9780965251136

Unit studies are wonderful for folks who want a multilevel family friendly homeschool.

For the upper elementary ages, the Prairie Primer makes use of the Little House on the Prairie books. If your children are interested in that series, it offers structured lesson plans and gives you lots of options.

Another unit study from Cadron Creek is Further Up and Further In. It is for the next age group. It is based on the Chronicles of Narnia, which is sparking the interest of a new generation with the new movies that are in production.

Where the River and Brook Meet uses the Anne of Green Gables series as the literature base. Designed for grades 7 to 12, your student will study the Victorian era in this one year curriculum.Where Brook and River Meet by Margie Gray 9780965251150

America An Integrated Curriculum by Chris Roe is a literature-based integrated American history curriculum for grades 3 to 6. It is a two year program with three 11 week studies for each year. The events in Peter Marshall’s Light and the Glory series for children are the focus for the first year. Other good books round out the study of America.
