A friend is asking about unit studies. She has kids from 7th to pre-k. They are having some school burnout and want to try something to spruce it up.

I used KONOS a LONG time ago, but I know there have to be some new programs out there.

Does anyone have any ideas I can share with her at Mom's Night tonight?

I love the nature study ones from Shining Dawn books; they're good for preschool to high school. Intellego also has some that fit a wide range of ages.

Everything You Need to Know About Homeschooling Unit Studies

I have this book and I think it does a great job explaining how to design your own unit studies and makes it seem very doable, especially with multiple ages. I think on their site they offer several unit study plans, too.
