South America is one of the last units in our connecting continents series (yes, we have an Antarctica unit, but as there are not individual countries, cultures, nor many animals, it is very different from our other ones.)
With a day in the life, stunning art, tons of amazing animals, and 10 different countries to explore, this unit will open your eyes to cultures, languages, and diverse customs around the world.
Our writing project for this unit is to write an article/news report. Students will be learning about reliable sources, how to conduct an interview, editing and newspaper layout, and more. We also included a Spanish feature in our notebooking pages each day for a foreign language component (vetted by a native Spanish speaker). Come join us to read some incredible missionary stories, what life is like, animals, geography, and much more as we explore this amazing continent together.
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.
