This full unit is quite unique compared to our others, and definitely one of the top sellers that many people love. Less of a flowing, informational lesson and more of a diagram with little tidbits of information, the lessons are engaging (especially if you have kids that love facts). Throughout this unit we focus on the scientific method in your student books, trying various experiments and walking through the steps to reinforce it.
The writing project for this unit is focused on expository writing. Younger students will be writing a paragraph and going through the steps of brainstorming, rough draft, editing, and final presentations. Older students are learning the difference between an expository and persuasive essay, as well as focusing on different methods of formatting and citing their sources. Because we do encourage middle and high school to do research, this is a great unit to reinforce how to actually cite their sources, showing where they found that information.
What to buy? You can purchase a leveled bundle with one student notebook of your choice and the Teacher's Guide, or the full family bundle that includes all levels with the Teacher's Guide. If you have more than one child you are buying for, it is more economical to get the full bundle to re-use in the future with your kids at older levels. All digital bundles come as an instant download in PDF format for you to print at home.
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.
