I'm in the planning stages for Wendy's Kindergarten year. Homeschooling gives us a lot of flexibility in what we study, which is one of the things I love. I know what we'll be using for reading, handwriting, math, and Bible time. With those basics covered, I'm left with the other things I'd like to teach her - about seasons, and holidays, and basic science, and all kinds of things!
I've decided that the best way to teach her those other things is to do unit studies. We can use library books and internet resources to learn all kinds of things, and we can do art projects, science experiments and writing assignments based on what we learn. Simple, right? Well, yes and no. It will require quite a bit of forethought on my part to make this work.
Here's where you come in: I need ideas. Below is a list I have compiled of possible unit study topics. I'd like to have 30 or so ideas to work with; in Tennessee we're required to have 180 days of 4-hours-a-day schooling, so I need lots of ideas!
Unit Study Ideas:
Dr. Seuss's Birthday (March 2nd)
How seeds grow
4th of July
Maps & Globes
So? What would you add?
