Linda discovered and used unit studies as a public school teacher and later exclusively used them during her 15 years as a homeschool mom with four children. She will explain what unit studies are, how to effectively use them, where to find them, how to make your own, and the benefits they provide for teaching several children at the same time. Other helpful hints Linda will provide include: connecting with each learning style, teaching with toddlers in the house, organizing your schedule around the unit, keeping God at the center of each unit, and expanding the lessons beyond the front door.
