"Education would be much more effective if its purpose was to ensure that by the time they leave school every boy and girl should know how much they do not know, and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it."
We love doing unit studies in our homeschool! We find it kindles an interest to learn. When children are given stacks of "living" books, activities and ideas about a certain subject, that subject comes alive! And anything that may have seemed dull at first glance suddenly becomes interesting! Here is a list of the free unit studies that we have prepared on this blog. Even if you have a curriculum, sometimes it is fun (and even necessary) to change things up (with a unit study in between) to avoid monotony. These would also be fun to do in the summer at a slower and enjoyable pace.
