Have you thought about using online courses for your homeschool in the coming year? I know I tend to think about it. I want my kids more comfortable being online, I want them engaged in what they are learning. And I want a little less prep work for me.
Unit Studies are collections of learning activities tied to a theme. They are popular with many homeschooling families as they provide a hands-on approach to learning that incorporates subjects such as math, science, language arts, and the social sciences.
Unit studies typically require a lot of prep from the homeschooling parent: research on all aspects of the topic, finding and reading books, finding websites, finding and/or creating work sheets/projects. In this day and age, that is a lot of old fashion paperwork. Enter…

I know you are probably wrapping up the school year, but being a homeschool mom, you are already planning next year. Which is why I think you’ll be interested in this.
Beth has done all the prep work, making these unit studies super easy for busy homeschool moms. Each unit study contains a curated list of great resources. These include articles, videos and assignments, helping children process information and apply their learning in multiple ways.
Beth’s Kickstarter campaign runs from now until May 15th, 2017. Currently, she has 15 unit studies available for purchase on her site. If her Kickstarter is success, she’ll develop an all-access pass to make it easier for homeschoolers to use the unit studies. Students will also be able to share their projects and comment on the courses.
By backing her project, you get great deals on all the unit studies! For just $15, you can a one-month all-access pass this September. If budget is tight right now, you can still test out the most interesting unit studies! For a pledge of $150 or more, you’ll get a one-year access to the unit studies. Just like that, you’ve got your curriculum for next year covered!
You can see just what her online unit studies are like with some samples:
- “What is Art?” from Famous Artists Volume 1
- “The Sun” from Solar System
- “Thomas Edison” from Famous Birthdays
- “Christmas in France” from Christmas Around the World
- “Ancient Greece Innovations” from Ancient Greece
With eight new unit studies planned to be live for when the All Access opens, roughly the first week of September, just in time for back to school.
