Ok is there a site out there that gives basic outlines on how to write one, or that actually has written ones you can use? I want to try this with Noah.

They do, but it can be rather project heavy. Although maybe you could get Noah to mostly orginize the unit himself. I don't have any actual studies for kids his age, but these pages are helps in making one.

There's also a book by Valerie Bendt I think it is. How to write a unit study or something like that.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I also am interested in starting to do unit studies next school year. I have just the two girls (ages 7 and 5) who are technically doing "school", the other 3 are way to little yet. But we'll have a family of 6 kids next year and the thought of all of them doing seperate cirricullums one day makes me very scared!!! We would like to start making it easier on everyone to school and unit studies seem the best way to go, in less anyone has any other suggestions for me. Does anyone know of good unit studies program that can incorporate different age spans and is reasonably priced and is also easy to use without a lot of prep time? I know I could be asking for the impossible, but it's worth a shot right! Thanks for any suggestions.
Mari

I would start with a search at homeschool reviews. http://www.homeschoolreviews.com/reviews/c...ult.aspx?id=118 and see if any of those appeal.
