Engaging hands-on activities and real-life experiences allow children at different stages to explore and learn together.
The Weather Unit Study is broken down into ten topics with manageable, bite-sized amounts of information:
- Topic 1: Climate
- Topic 2: Temperature
- Topic 3: The Water Cycle
- Topic 4: Clouds
- Topic 5: Forces and Winds
- Topic 6: Thunder and Lightning
- Topic 7: Tornadoes
- Topic 8: Hurricanes
- Topic 9: Snow
- Topic 10: Weather Forecasting
My kids and I really enjoyed learning about the weather with the help of this unit. It provided me with guidance on how to teach them in an organized way.
We totally started your weather unit today! I was supposed to start Monday and we've been behind, so we just jumped right into snow today. It was perfect. I loved how they were able to feel the snow and talk about dry/wet snow and air. Unexpected and perfect! Love how open and go your unit studies are.
I’m a second year homeschooling mom, first time creating a curriculum on my own. We are LOVING the family units. We are using them for our 1st, 4th, and 6th graders, and our 4 year old is tagging along. They are just so well put together: they’re engaging, fun, and long enough to gain great information but short enough to keep interest at all levels.
I love the differentiation for the different grade levels of our kids, too. It’s empowering to see them recognize they all might be learning the same material, but they have different levels of understanding to go along with the knowledge.
