This full unit is an incredible unit study full of diversity, missionary stories, food, clothing, culture, geography, features, lifestyle, and of course animals! Come experience Africa like you never have before (and don't miss the recipe book for this unit too!). One of the most unique features of this unit is the project, where we have students create a travel journal. Younger students have cutouts in the appendix that they can paste to make a collage. Freewrites, journaling, and letter writing are the main LA focuses for writing for this unit. You can even send your letters to the Spooner's at the Gather 'Round headquarters!
Hands on activities, prompts to make a diorama of the African savannah, and grammar pages focusing on oral narration, sentence structure, summation, and more!
What to buy? You will need to purchase a physical workbook for each child as well as a Teacher's Guide for yourself. The Teacher's Guides contain all the actual teaching, they are not just for answers, so they are critical to your lessons. Printed books are printed on 32lb. paper and are shipped to you coil bound.
How long are units designed to last? Each unit is designed to be 4-5 weeks. Our main units and most of our mini units include 20 lessons and can be done as a 4-day school week (lasting 5 weeks) or a 5-day school week (lasting 4 weeks) to offer flexibility. You're in control! Set a schedule that works best for your family and your pace will dictate how quickly you complete any given unit.
