Online courses are increasingly becoming a great way to learn. I’ve been personally using them to learn many different things myself. And, I’m so excited that there are so many choices for my kids as well. If you’re studying Ancient Rome or Inventors this year, keep reading!

Spring is in the air and if things are the same in your home as mine, you may have the homeschool itch to mix things up a little. Or maybe you’re already starting to think about next year and want to try something new!
Why Use Online Unit Studies?
Online Unit Studies are a great way to breathe new life into your homeschool routine. These Internet-based courses are fun for your kids but require hardly any prep from you.
You don’t need to invest in lots of books and extra supplies. And you won’t accumulate much stuff because all learning happens online.
- Easy prep for busy moms. Just click and learn
- Can be done as a family and adjusted for learning styles
- Kids will learn to use digital tools
- Option to combine digital and hands-on projects
- No need to purchase extra books
- Little writing, lots of videos = great alternative for children with learning challenges
My Favorite Online Unit Studies
One of my favorite Online Unit Studies is Famous Artists Volume 1. It’s just like the other Online Unit Studies in that you use the course to learn about a subject (in this case, an artist and his style) and do online projects. The difference is that there is a hands-on project as well since kids are creating art!. See my kids in action with the lesson on Wassily Kandinsky and Synesthesia here.
Another Online Unit Study I love is Famous Birthdays. In this study, your kids will learn about 2 famous people each month. So fun!
