NEW!!! Beginning fall 2006, we will be using the Prairie Primer unit study along with TruthQuest AHYS II. Mikaela is so excited to dig into the Little House books and live the time period with pioneer crafts and games! On the last leg of the year, Winter Term, we will be covering the Civil War and doing a Unit on Slavery by Teacher-Created Materials. Just to mix things up a bit, we plan to take several breaks from our history studies and do science-related units on Electricity (TOPS), Light/Human Eye (KONOS), Horses (KONOS), and Industrial Revolution/Simple Machines (Teacher-Created Materials).
We haven't done much in the way of unit studies for the past couple of years, so this should be a fun excursion! Click on the 2006-7 TruthQuest Schedule below to take a peek. Also, take a look at the 4th Grade weekly unit study schedule below.
