So yesterday I read this post at Not Inadequate and I was intimidated yet inspired to figure out just exactly how unit studies work. It just so happens that the kids and I had started a book on Penguins yesterday and after doing research til almost midnight I decided to turn it into a unit study. I am a unit study virgin, never did one when I was a classroom teacher and I've never done one here at home but it seems to make so much sense with how my kids learn.
My unit study research turned me onto lapbooking and there are about a million resources for figuring them out. Just google. Then google a subject you are interested in and lapbook together. Amazing. How did I not know about this?
So yeah. We're doing a unit study on penguins and there will be a lapbook at the end. Stay tuned to see how it turns out!
