Join us for our very first story-based unit, where you will be joining the Maydens on a road trip from sea to shining sea as we explore some of the most incredible national parks of North America. The perfect unit to lead up to camping, or give you a little extra indoor fun in the long, cold winter, kids of all ages are going to love this one. Student books have a daily survival page focusing on skills such as starting fires, identifying plants, following maps, and more that go along with our novel study, designed to be done at the same time (though it doesn't have to be)! There is also a daily focus on character with a devotional, word study, and more. Think of it as a novel with sneaky learning in it! With deep dives into history, ecology, science, geography, and art, we have a rich month of discovery awaiting us!
The writing project: Younger students will write a report about their favorite park while middle schoolers and higher will be learning about essays! These pages are once a week, if you find you want daily instruction, we made writing tracks to go along with these with daily instruction, examples, and step-by-step breakdown to walk you through the process! Check those out HERE.

National Parks Character Cards: Our National Parks Character Cards are 20 custom illustrated cards to remind you of the character traits from each lesson’s family devotional. You can display them as a reminder to help you grow in each character trait or to help you with scripture memorization. These are available in DIGITAL or PRINT.
Optional Daily Seatwork/Writing Mechanics: Our Seatwork Journal is a writing mechanics daily practice notebook that includes copywork (in your choice of manuscript or cursive), memory work, spelling practice, vocabulary, daily planning, and even grammar! Available in Early Reader-High School in DIGITAL or PRINT, these journals have specific spelling words and grammar sections that are appropriate for your child's level.
