  1. I am looking for unit studies on any of the following appropriate for a 6th grader . Ideally I would love unit studies that also could be adapted for a 8 year old as well because I'd like to combine subjects as much as possible, but my 11 year old NEEDS to learn this stuff by year after next (will be attending a public 7th grade) while my 8 year old doesn't need to study this yet. FORCE, MOTION AND ENERGY LAYERS OF THE EARTH ROCK CYCLE (metamorphic, igneous, sedimentary rock) ECOSYSTEMS BIOLOGY (Cells, Taxonomic classifications, Organisms and their Environments) SPACE Would also love suggestions of good videos about these topics. Any suggestions appreciated!
  2. So...I got the Explorers to WWII project stuff. I have *never* done lapbooks before. I know I'm not going to do this right. I mean, how in the world do I know where things go? I realize it's color, cut, paste/tape type of stuff...but I want it to look NICE, too. I'm in over my head, here. I just know it. Those of you who lapbook, please hold my hand. I'm not a lap-booker, but I know my middle kids (especially) will LOVE this. I'm using it in conjunction with VP Self-paced on-line (Explorers to 1815), to enrich that. If we don't have $$$ for next year, I will be forced to use it for 1815 to modern ages. HEELLLPP! Thank you.
  3. In a recent thread I was introduced to a course that would be a good fit for my son....Movies as Literature. This got me thinking. What other unusual High School courses are there out there? Things that your child would NOT meet in ps. I know this is a classical board, but i am thinking outside the classical arena here....although fun, unusual or unique approaches to classical stuff is also welcome. :) Willow.
  4. I thought I had asked or read a thread about this before but can't find it. Ds and I were talking today about things he might like to explore in a few years. Star Trek entered the conversation and I thought it might be fun to take a semester (possibly year long) class on Star Trek. I know there are a thousands ways to go at this, but I'm looking for books, videos, etc. that could help with this exploration. Some ideas I have already include: Books: (some great ones on this link) Physics of the Impossible Star Trek and Philosophy The Ethics of Star Trek The Klingon Dictionary Physics of Star Trek Also maybe explore these areas: The religions of Star Trek and compare to known religions The judicial system of space The Klingon as warriors Astronomy A bio on Roddenberry Compare/contrast the different captains of the series Engineering of a Starship Watch the movies/series and compare. Rewatch the series that was on History (?) channel about Star Trek. Explore how the technology of Star Trek has affected known technology. Has anyone done a class like this? Do you have any other websites, books, or videos that could be added?
  5. Earlier this summer, I discovered Amanda Bennett's unit studies. It started with the Elections study. It's only 4 weeks long if used as scheduled (could shorten the time it takes with some tweaking), it's an important topic, and the dc are about to see it all play out in real life this year. What a perfect opportunity, right? Then I noticed the sports-themed units and a few others my boys would LOVE. School might hold their interest and there might be a spark of delight. That thought keeps me trying to find a way to make this work. However, I have no plans to put aside our regular WTM school schedule for this. I could adapt slightly, but I do want to get through the work ahead of us. Is there a way to fit these in that I'm just not seeing?
  6. I'm heavily considering TOG to use with my upcoming 5th, 3rd, and 1st graders, having just finished our first four-year cycle with TWTM / SOTW but I am not sure I can justify the cost and labor for just humanities (history, geography, literature, writing) when we also want to cover the other classical subjects: math, science, grammar, handwriting/typing, spelling, Latin, Spanish, Intro to Logic (last two are for my oldest). With such a focus on one area, I'm concerned about it swallowing up the time energy that needs to be distributed among the others. And it sounds like a scheduling nightmare. In the past, we haven't formally studied writing because it happened organically with the narrations - same with geography, so I'm not sure whether we need to specialize like that. So I either need people who have successfully made the above scenario work to encourage me or I would like to find a program (or even just a scheduling tool) that is more aligned with TWTM. I considered Classical House of Literature but again, it's a lot of emphasis on one area. Maybe that's okay but I'm worried about overkill... (I also posted another thread with specific questions just about TOG http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=390173 )
  7. Hello all! Just thought I'd share the info I collected for our Thanksgiving Unit Study. Hope it's a help and saves someone out there some research time. My son is on a Kinder/1st grade level (with toddler siblings along for the ride) so most of the info is geared toward that age. However, a lot of it could be useful to older kiddos as well. Here's the link: Gettin' Skooled Thanksgiving Unit Study Thanks! Leslie
  8. If you were going to build your own Five in a Row/Sonlight-style literature-based unit studies, what favorite books would you include? What instructional techniques would you borrow from your favorite storybook curricula? We've been reading Curious George Rides a Bike and I was thinking there's a lot there to play with: How bicycles work (physics), folding paper boats (geometry), ostriches and chimpanzees and bears, oh my! (zoology), "What's a newspaper, mama?" (because you know it's history to kids these days!), and maybe a field trip to the circus! I also cooked up ideas for Skippyjon Jones, Micawber and The Mysterious Tadpole and posted them on my blog, but I'm looking for inspiration and other books you think might be well-suited for such multifaceted studies!
  9. I was this close to getting MFW and then found out it jumps around in SOTW. I really don't want to do that, especially since we've read books 1-3 as they are written, in chronological order. Plus my oldest really likes bouncing back and forth between countries, and I like keeping the narrative thread, even if it isn't always obvious. I mean SWB wrote it that way for a reason, right? After my bubble burst with finding out the above, I also realized I can't justify the expense of MFW vs. doing it the WTM way, esp. because I don't think I would even use all the supplemental (but required) history books, most of which seem to have an emphasis on patriotism, missions, and Bible. Still, I like the idea of having a pre-made lesson plan and a way to tie history together with other subjects in addition to literature, so as to help with teaching multiple ages. I'm guessing, though, that there isn't anything that follows the order of SOTW 4 rather than grouping by country, or what have you...but just in case I'm wrong, I had to post this.
  10. Hi there, I am contemplating using Weaver for my Grade 1 level child. I am using Weaver Interlock at the moment and I find it really great BUT I am wondering whether my child is actually retaining any of the information. I am using CLE for Language Arts - my daughter seems to remember things from this from day to day. Yet for our Bible, character and Weaver Interlock stuff she just can't seem to recall barely anything? Is it that Unit studies are more fun and all over the place so that kids may not be able to retain as much knowledge as if it was all in order? I just wondered what other people's experiences are with unit studies and maybe some tips on how to teach her so that she recalls it better. Thanks Sherid
  11. Although I missed their half off sale last month, I recently discovered Intellego Unit Studies just last week. I've read enough reviews to know I want several of these to go along with what we're already using for science, history, and geography. I'm so psyched that they offer many subjects for the K-2 age, and I think we could even go some of their Grade 3-5 range as well to go in more depth. Anyone have any favorites (or duds)? Here's what I'm thinking to get this month, all of these are K-2 age: Across the United States American History Volume 1: The First People Maps! States of Matter World History I: In the Beginning The Animal Kingdom Life Science: Habitats Geography: Continents and Cultures K-2 Economics: Goods and Services Dang, there's just too many I want. Help me narrow it down with some suggestions!
  12. I'm wondering how US generally work. I'm reevaluating how we are schooling. Are there US that incorporate Christianity, Science, History etc.? What about Writing? ? I assume I would need to add Math and Handwriting. I'm OK with prep work and I still want to stick with real books. I've looked at some of Amanda Bennett's studies, but have no clue how in depth they are or what age groups they are for. I've also looked at Organic H'schooling, but can't tell if they are too young for a 1st and 3rd grader. I've looked at the KONOS site, but it has me completely confused:001_huh: Any help would be greatly appreciated. :001_smile:
  13. I just ordered Volume I of Konos, because dh wanted me to do more fun things with the dc. I thought it would be easy to find info about because it's been around so long and is so popular. But I can't find anything accept the official forum and I'm waiting to get approved to look at that. Does anyone know of any other forums, blogs, booklists, etc? Thanks!
  14. So.. This year we have been using the Year Long planning (file folder method) that has the super long thread here at WTM. I have to say I am very happy with the year long planning.. and am looking ahead to next year.. yes, I know it's only January.. but we are 1/2 through our school year and I would like to avoid what I did this school year.. all my planning in 2 weeks in August..that was not fun. I was considering adding Unit Studies to our homeschool.. Where do I start? How do I make it mesh with the yearly planning that has worked so well for us? Where do I learn how to do this..Prepared or Make my own?? I'd prefer either secular or lightly faith based.. I can add in what I need to those
  15. I just got one for Christmas and am already in love! She's also having 12 days a sales starting Sunday! http://www.unitstudy.com/12DaysSpecials.html
  16. Allright, here's the scoop--my family is taking a three month trip to the U.S. (from overseas) for a short home assignment from mid-December to early March. I don't have room in the baggage to take all of our homeschool books, besides we're going to be spending the whole time traveling. (We're missionaries and will be covering the U.S. map from Florida to Missouri to Maine visiting family and churches.) My children are 3rd grade and Kindergarten. I know I need to bring my k-ers phonics program. But I thought about trying to take a little break from our regular curriculum and try some fun things that are highly portable. I think that I can do this: Math Mammoth blue units--early geometry, measurements and U.S. money 3rd graders L.A.--Buy Sentence Family download and do that with her along with SchoolHouse Rock videos and Mad libs With our traveling--work through U.S. States and Capitals book and maybe for "science" learn about the wildlife and plants of each region in the U.S. Does that sound too light? It would be a mini-unit study kind of thing, then we would be returning to our normal studies after we return from our trip to the U.S. Maybe we could make a lapbook or something of the U.S. state birds, flowers, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks for the input. I'm all ears!:bigear:
  17. My two year search for the perfect science curriculum has led me to conclude that I shall either have to write my own, or appraoch science without a curriculum, piece by piece. So, to those of you who do not use a science curriculum, what do you do to provide structure and coherency? Do you use a standard line of questions and a science log ala WTM which the student completes for every book or experiment? Do you choose a spine and follow rabbit trails? Just narration, copywork, etc.? I am asking generally, for grades 3-8. I have divided our science studies each year into three parts: nature study (with a nature notebook), natural history (readings), and "science". I have already planned out nature study and natural history, and have only "science" to consider. In this facet, I'd like us to study chemistry, zoology, botany, physics, astronomy, physical geography, meteorology, etc. I have a general order of study, but HOW to go about this has my stymied. I have read the WTM recommendations for grammar and logic stage, but I'd love to hear from the hive, too.;) Thank you for all your replies! :)
  18. My dearest friend realizes that her son, 11yo, 5th grade, Really enjoys unit studies. Any suggestions on companies and/or curriculum that are unit study based? Thanks for your suggestions :)
  19. We are using High School Biology in Your Home this year for my 8th and 9th grader. (A research based program). We have a variety of reference books, but I am looking for some interesting books written on any aspect of Biology. My oldest is more of a literary/artistic type and the scientific language and dry writing is throwing her for a loop. I am looking for something that explains clearly, is well written and somewhat literary in style. Any recomendations? It need not cover all aspects of Biology as they are looking up their information all over the place. I'd just like some resources around that are interesting, accessible and thourough. Any ideas?:grouphug:
  20. I was sure I had seen a thread like this before on here, but nothing I'm searching is coming up with anything, so.... My daughter will be 9th grade next year, and I'm weighing my options. She is definitely not a textbook kind of girl. We had talked about Where the Brook and River Meet, but she thinks she's pretty "done" with Anne of Green Gables, and isn't sure she wants to spend a whole year on that. SO, looking for other non-textbook options:-) We have used MFW for the last 5 years, so that's one obvious choice. What else is out there that might be a contender?
  21. I can start. ;) I know there is much derision of Gothic novels, but as a Jane Eyre fan, I can't embrace that derision. :D Our Gothic Novel exploration
