I love to do a unit study each month, which is usually something to do with history or science. We check out a bunch of books from the library and do some hands-on activities (that I find from the internet or books and many times–lapbooks). Here are my ideas for this year.
January–Knights and Castles; Pandas
February–Africa–the continent, people, and animals
March–Safety and Nutrition
April–Simple Machines; Abraham Lincoln
May–Light and Color; Charles Darwin
August–Cowboys and Trains
October–John Calvin and the Reformation
