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. The kids will love this Farm Animal Unit Study.
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!
