I've been trying to decide what I'm going to use to teach Sassy Pants next year since she's finished the kindergarten curriculum, but I don't think she's ready for first grade. I think I might do some unit studies.
U is for Unit Studies
A unit study involves learning about one topic in depth across a variety of subjects. For example, rather than segmenting learning about the ocean into history, science, art, etc., a unit study has the child learning about the ocean in a way that makes it all united. This can be done through the use of "real" books as opposed to textbooks, science experiments, hands-on activities, and art projects.
Now I just have to decide what topics would be fun to study. Space, oceans, dogs, and soccer are just a few I've thought of.
Do you have any topics you think would be fun to learn about in kindergarten?
