Unit Programs

unit programs

Use our unstructured unit programs how you want to, rather than having a pre-planned, checkbox homeschool curriculum that tells you exactly what to say, what to do and when to do it.

Study history, science, language arts and fine arts together, organized within the framework of nine historical units covering from Creation to Modern.

  • Choose from hundreds of pre-read book suggestions, divided by time period and topic.
  • Gather your books from our suggestions and read the Teacher’s Overview for the unit.
  • Decide what you want to cover and choose from our project ideas which history and science activities you would like to do for each unit.
  • Select copy work from the history and science books you have gathered for each of your students, using our Language Arts checklists to make sure you don’t miss anything important.
  • Decide the music and artist for the unit from our fine art suggestions to round out your study of the historical period.

Then simply journal what you do with each student! If you go off on a rabbit trail, no problem!

Our Unit Programs include:

  • Nine historical units, beginning with Creation and ending with Modern
  • One Resource Unit with spine and other across-the-units resource suggestions to enhance your study
  • Three to ten page Teacher’s Overviews of each historical period describing key events and people
  • Book lists of the best children’s literature available, pre-read by the authors and screened for quality writing, anti-Christian bias, and often beautiful illustrations – all divided by topic within the subjects of history, science and fine arts (with 400+ book suggestions in each of the four age levels)
  • A 100+ page Teacher’s Manual describing how to teach and evaluate history, science, language arts and fine arts. (We have two manuals — one for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade and one for Sixth Grade through High School.)
  • A CD or automatic download including customizable forms for planning, graphic organizers, note booking pages, language arts helps, and more.
  • Nine cut-apart laminate-able history bookmarks corresponding to our nine units.

Your children can easily study the same history periods and topics at the same time with our Unit Programs!  Share family discussions, have your children listen to each other’s narrations and reports, enjoy high-interest read-alouds as a family, and let your kids work on lapbooks, notebooking pages and projects together – all on your own timetable and at your own pace.
