If you love the idea of Unit Studies but are overwhelmed at the thought of piecing something together yourself, the Prairie Primer may just be exactly what you are looking for! Perfect for K-8th.
Because I love American history, simpler times and an agrarian lifestyle; the Prairie Primer was my hands down FAVORITE unit study of all time! In fact, I used it repeatedly in my 15 years of homeschooling, both in it’s entirety as well as circling back in subsequent years to utilize favorite selected sections.
I LOVE unit studies because the information seems to come to life when you integrate many subjects together from a time period. It’s also fabulous for teaching multiple grade levels at once. I took my time working through this curriculum source that utilizes The Little House on the Prairie series because I found it to be so rich with suggested activities, books to read, field trips to take and so forth.
Some of my most fond homeschool memories come from all my boys snuggled up on the couch, as they were transported back to the 1800s, as we read through The Little House On The Prairie Books. This series instilled in my boy’s hearts a love for a family centered, self-sustaining way of life.
