Learn Together with Family Unit Studies
Has homeschooling become a hard, monotonous, struggle? Is free time a thing of your past? No longer, my friend! With Family Unit Studies, everyone learns together, bringing a fun, easy rhythm back to your homeschool.
Homeschooling multiple children can be a challenge.
How can I get rid of power struggles over school work?
What do I do with younger siblings as I work with my older children?
How do I find time for fun, hands on projects in the midst of the daily school work?
How do I find projects that work for ALL of my children?
How can we spend our days together, growing and learning as a family?
...but it doesn't have to be!
Family Unit Studies make it easy.
Unit studies are perfect for:
home learning or unschooling
filling gaps in learning caused by a disruptive year
Each unit study is divided into 10 sub-topics with manageable, bite-sized amounts of information.
Sub-topics start with sparks to ignite curiosity...
to Spark Curiosity
A great deal of learning will happen all on its own when children are interested in what they are learning about.
to Start a Conversation
Allow yourself to go wherever the conversation goes! Children can learn so much from having discussions and conversations.
Curated YouTube Video
for Fun Learning with Experts
Carefully curated YouTube videos allow your child to visually immerse themselves in the unit's topic.
for a Literacy-Rich Environment
Read together or encourage independent exploration with these library book suggestions that naturally ignite learning.
...then engage and expand with hands-on learning!
for Deep Learning
Engaging activities target specific skills, such as science, art, social studies, geography, cooperation, critical thinking, early engineering, and creativity.
to Learn the Science
Learn more about the science behind the hands-on activity with this helpful information.
Math or Literacy Enrichment
Each topic includes a word-based math problem or a literacy activity modified to three levels so they are fitting for the whole family.
Tips and Printables
Each Family Unit Study includes an introduction with tips, as well as printables to extend learning.

What people are saying about Family Unit Studies:
"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’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.
Again, thanks for all you do. Our first grader has Down syndrome and we use your literacy skills pieces all. the. time. You do wonderful work.
Have a beautiful day!
My students love rocks and they loved this resource. I have these Geodes that were just waiting to be broken and this allowed us to learn about them while we broke them. The kids had awesome day. —Jennifer Y.
Just wanted to share with you how much fun we’re having with the human body unit study. My 3 yo is loving the YouTube videos and asks to watch ‘body’ movies several times a day! My 5 yo was able to correct his 5 yo Buddy from down the street about what your rib cage is and what organ it protects and what its function is!! He’s really good at math also and loves the word problems - even getting the multiplication and division questions! My 13 yo is my teaching assistant this year and she’s even enjoying them! (Although, don’t tell her that - she’s too cool for this little kids stuff 🙄😁😂) —Tanya K.
I’ve printed and looked through Reptiles. I’m really excited to start this with my third grade son. I’m most impressed how simple but effective it will be! I’ve eyed and looked through so many reptile units like xxxxxx, etc. I feel so many science units are information overload and really over the heads of kids. Your unit gets to the point and is in a language kids will actually connect with! AND it’s not full of write a paragraph, write, write, write and more writing! —Whitney

I encourage you to add in ‘core skills’ when using unit studies. A solid foundation in literacy and numeracy will benefit your child immensely. About 30 minutes a day spent on reading, writing, and math (30 minutes total) complements these unit studies perfectly. Of course, this is optional and really depends on your personal view of education.
With my own children, we cover our math and literacy core skills in the morning then dive into a Family Unit Study in the afternoon. I offer a Grade 1 and Grade 2 Math and Literacy Curriculum that perfectly complements the Family Unit Studies—and for the duration of the Family Unit Study sale, you can get them for 20% off!
