HOW TO USE THIS UNIT STUDY ENHANCER..
Grade level: I aim for my printables to be used by upper elementary to high school.It’s difficult to cover every subtopic which interests your child in a unit study. A unit study enhancer is part of your unit study or theme and it enhances your teaching points. It’s meant to bring up close a subtopic or topic that you want to highlight within a theme.
ADD them to a notebook, lapbook, use with a workbook or include them as a subtopic in a free or purchased unit study because the printables are not a complete unit study, but enhance one.
Too, by giving you options within the product download, they are designed to relieve teacher prep time and to use with multiple ages of children. For instance, some downloads have simple researched printed material to glue onto pages. This allows you to move forward teaching when your time is limited.
Or, you can have your student research his own information and write it in. Where possible, I give one link or more for reference while using the printables.
Unless a topic is specifically geared toward young learners, quality photos and not babyish images are chosen so that older learners can be engaged. Color graphics are used to diminish the blah of boring printables.
If you find a link that is not working, please email me at tinahomeschools AT yahoo DOT com. However, you’re not paying for link research but for quality printables focused on topics that enhance your teaching objectives.
Advantages of using the unit study enhancers:
- They can be used for multiple ages of children.
- It’s hard to cover every topic that interests your child or that you need to cover in a unit study. A unit study enhancer lets your students delve into topic that interest them.
- During my years of homeschooling, we have returned several times to the same unit study topic. However, we always cover a different facet or subtopic. A unit study enhancer will help you to cover points you may otherwise not find information about.
