Unit Studies are a fun way to bring everything together and learn. They generally encompass all of the scholastic subjects through the study of a single topic. Sometimes it can be rather confusing as to where to start or even decide what topics are worth studying as a Unit Study. There are some amazing Home Educating companies that sell pre-made Unit Studies and there are some fabulous FREE resources scattered throughout the web.
One of the companies we have reviewed in the past that provides a wonderful array of unit study resources is ArtAchieve and best of all they are now available through SchoolhouseTeachers.com. John has done an amazing job or sourcing information to go with his art lessons from around the world. You can view a sample of these here: The Chinese Horse: Drawing The Horse’s Head.
The biggest issue I have found these days is that I struggle to find the time to gather resources for our homeschool. Today a few of our team would like to share some of the resources they have available for you on their blogs. We invite you to grab a cup of tea and come and browse with us.

- How Do You Use Unit Studies? – I’ve been asked how we’ve used unit studies, and if it’s possible to build an entire year’s curriculum using unit studies. We’ve used unit studies in a few different ways – more when the students were younger – and yes, it is possible to build curriculum for an entire year around unit studies!
