Free Homeschooling Unit Study: November 2011

Sharing is caring!

Each month, I will send in a neat unit study that coordinates with fun and sometimes wacky Holidays for the upcoming month.  In addition to tips, ideas, and thoughts, I will also include links to some fun things to learn about in your homeschool.  Don’t homeschool?  No big deal!  Spend time with your kids during the weekends and on holidays doing these fun things and teach them something in the process!

I love using themed unit resources to help teach and learn about topics with the kids!

i just finished dipping my bowl of pretzels in peanut butter so i just HAD to click on your link over on "carolyns homework". driving through alabama last week (i believe that's where it was) i saw signs up for the national peanut festival. sounded like a big fair so it might be expensive to get tickets. but i'm sure it's fun!
