Started by Sharon who learned that unit studies worked really well in schooling her family, and thus Homeschool Legacy was born. Unit studies can bring family closeness and with Christ-centric studies, learning about the Lord comes easily and naturally.
I have to admit that over the review period I was hit with a NASTY cold... the kind that wipes you out and comes back looking for more to take...so we plugged along but some items slipped through the cracks. So when I say that you can literally take this study and run with it.. you can!!! Seriously. When a foggy brain says in complete shock and dismary "oh.. right.. that review.. we're supposed to do!!! Um..Let's grab it and do something" It's all there and so easy. Clickable Links provided, recipes, information and activities. All RIGHT THERE, no searching for library books or activities to do... just grab it, give it a quick read over and teach your children. So for foggy minded mommas, and hacking up a lung boys, this is an easy to use unit study for your learning pleasure. :) IMAGINE what you could do if you have no illness impeding you eh? It would be amazing!!!
We learned about George Washington and made a cherry pie.
"WHAT?" was my startled and admittedly confused response.
"Catting...you know... when people go around acting like cats. Pouncing on things, randomly knocking things over and things like that. Don't you think Catting would be a good word mom?"
I told him "It's a great word lad, use it more often and mayhap it will catch on."
We also made Macaroni and Cheese, Thomas Jefferson Style
These micro unit studies are SO easy to fit into a week. Grab a day, learn about a president in a variety of formats (video, reading, researching, activity and cooking) doesn't even need to take a whole day, can do it in a couple of hours... with the cooking time extra of course. I loved the simplicity of it all and ... if I were so inclined, it would be so easy to expand the study into something larger, using this study as a spine.
Responsive customer service. ALWAYS a big seller in my household.
One of the biggest struggles we had was that the recipes didn't work well. I really wish that kitchen-testing recipes had been engaged in. Two of the recipes we used required tweaking, and another we found an alternative for. Granted, once Sharon is alerted to this fact, she responses very quickly. :)
