Unit studies

 

Use unit studies to incorporate and integrate subjects regularly.  It is ok to take a break from the set courses to enjoy immersion in a topic that we find interesting. Unit studies should incorporate independent research, outings to relevant museums or activities, discussion, sharing of ideas, critical thinking and logic, passing on new found knowledge to others in varying formats (retelling, plays, artwork, project books, lap books, computer designed newsletters).
