Guess what Turkey Day is coming and I cant wait. For us Thanksgiving is about more than just eating turkey its a chance to learn a little history. This year we are doing the once a week micro study Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims by Homeschool Legacy. Homeschool Legacy is a curriculum provider that produces unit studies that are Christian based. So if you are looking for great Christian unit studies you are going to want to check out what they have to offer.
This is a once a week micro study designed for grades 1-8. This grade range was perfect for my 2nd and 4th graders. This micro study is done once a week for 6 weeks and provides children with a thorough understanding of Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims. You can do three 30-minute assignments a week or you may do them all in one day. We choose to do them all in one day because well the girls just wanted to. These are downloaded unit studies that you can print but we choose to just read most of it from the computer since it has links that you can click. There are also a few pictures in the download and we don't have a color printer so the pictures just look better on the computer. Each lesson suggest a read-a-loud or classic to do as a family. There are also links that will take you to things like videos to help enhance each lesson.
Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims has six weekly lessons:
- The Scrooby Separatists
- The Voyage
- At Home in Plymouth
- Happy Thanksgiving!
- The Puritans
- Merry Christmas!
