“Goldilocks and the 3 Bears” was my daughter’s go-to story when she was little. You know, the one she asked me to read over and over (and over and over and over) again. My little blondie even had a “Goldilocks and the 3 Bears” 3rd birthday party. How cute is that?!?! I remember her cute little voice quoting Goldilocks …”Too soft. Too hard. Just right.” “Too hot, Too cold. Just right”…over and over (and over and over and over) again. Choosing a unit study can feel like a Goldilocks experience. “Too long. Too short. Too dry. Too fluffy. Too rigid. Too flexible. Too much planning. Too many supplies.” It’s hard to find the “Just right” unit study for your family. Unit Studies have always been a part of our home education. I had learned about and embraced the concept of “thematic units” and “integrated learning” when I was pursuing my Secondary Education degree. So, using unit studies to educate my own children made sense. [Related post: How We Homeschool – Our Daily Routine] For over 12 years, our family has reaped the benefits of unit studies.

What’s not to love about homeschool unit studies? You can choose topics that interest you and cover multiple subjects at once. They work great for families with a range of ages and learning styles. And unit studies lend themselves to a more experiential education with hands-on project-based activities. We’ve been homeschooling with unit studies for over 12 years. However, as much as I love unit studies, for the past few years, I’ve been disappointed with the format of traditional unit studies. I need to gather and/or purchase lots of additional resources. I end up with tons of paper and projects cluttering my home when the study is done. Often the suggested projects seem like “busy work” and are not relevant to the way my kids learn. I also find that many unit study guides and ebooks are out-dated, recommending obsolete print materials or broken and “old school” weblinks. And navigating a unit study from a webpage can be confusing. I’ve wanted a more “modern” unit study, something updated that meets the needs of my “digital native” children.
