Unit Studies & Lap Books

Unit studies are a great way to unify the teaching day. They allow a parent or teacher to instruct multiple ages and levels of learning on a specific topic in an inviting and fun atmosphere. Unit studies can be created by choosing the subject matter (for instance, an era of history) and adding literature studies, science projects, arts and crafts, composition, and even math based on that time period. This is the essence of a unit study approach. By drawing from a variety of resources, including field trips, reference materials, and experiments, you can use notebooks to record what is learned and draw most subjects into a single topic. These take more creativity and involvement on the part of the teacher, but they allow for wonderful learning experiences.
