Unit Studies 101
For those of you who are new to unit studies, let me give you a quick overview. A unit study is a curricular approach that focuses on a single topic—in this case, spiders. The goal is to provide a well-rounded education by covering multiple subject areas, such as science, numbers, letters, writing, art and more! This approach is especially beneficial for young learners because it helps them make connections between different concepts.

The Spider Unit Study
Now that you know a little bit more about unit studies, let’s take a look at what’s included in the Spider Unit Study Curriculum.
