Homeschool Unit Study Resources

Unit studies are so popular amongst homeschoolers that they’re often in their own category of homeschooling styles. A homeschool unit study isn’t much different from any other unit study, though you may need to adjust activities to accommodate just one or two students instead of twenty.

What Is a Unit Study?

Unit studies explore a specific topic or theme within various subject areas. Instead of learning about one topic in science, one topic in history, and still another topic in language arts, you explore the same core topic from various subject areas. The one subject that is often difficult to integrate into unit studies seems to be math. Math is also a sequential subject, meaning each lesson builds upon the previous lessons. For these reasons, many unit study homeschoolers choose to keep math separate.

If this hands-on approach to learning sounds like something your family would enjoy, grab some unit studies and incorporate them into your homeschooling this back to school season! Assuming a 36-week school year – and considering most unit studies last a few weeks – you’ll only need about 12 unit studies to round out the entire year. Unit studies are consistently being added, so check back frequently!

History Unit Studies

Language Arts Unit Studies

Regardless of what topic you choose to study with your students, is an excellent go-to resource for adding reading material. Simply type in the topic you’re studying in the search bar and enjoy the options you’ll have in front of you!

Science Unit Studies

Cross-Curricular Unit Studies (Art, Music, Holidays, etc.)

Since unit studies are so popular amongst homeschoolers, don’t be surprised if you find yourself hooked! Be sure to bookmark this page, too, so you can easily find this collection of homeschool unit studies in the future.
