    Every unit is a treasure trove. They’ve done it again. This unit was a treasure trove of learning and “wow!” moments. Between the history of one of the most significant places on earth, the science of motion – something I am so happy we covered, and all he aspects of physical earth – we could have spent 2 months learning more every day. Between the guide itself, the YouTube playlist and the Pinterest board for the units there’s so storage of ways to make this unit meaningful and engaging.

    The flexibility of this curriculum is one of the things that makes it great! We can add in lots of activities during a slow month where we have lots of time at home, or just do a few during the busy months.

    Our family is enjoying this family-style curriculum so much! Each unit we are digging into the topics with fun, meaningful activities and learning in a way I wish I had learned growing up. Plus, we are all learning together (kids ages 4-14). Thanks you so much for creating this resource!
