History: Ancient Persians
Geography: The Arctic and Antarctica
Science: Vibrations and Waves
The Arts: Melody in Music
Want to learn to play musical instrument tag (no musical instruments required!)? Can you make objects jump with just the power of your own voice? Would you like to learn how to plan your own polar expedition? Or make a time capsule like Cyrus the Great? Unit 1-9 includes all of this, plus lots of printables, and tons of ideas to keep your kids learning with hands-on fun.
In each unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips. Printable maps and worksheets are included at the end of each unit and may be printed as often as needed for your family or class.
This unit can be used as a unit study, an idea book to supplement any curriculum, or as part of the Layers of Learning Program covering history, science, geography and art in a four year rotation.
