My Book of Mammal's

As a rookie homeschool mom I am learning that there are SOOOO many choices in homeschool curriculum. It is easy to get very overwhelmed when trying to decide what methods to use. One method we chose, to incorporate Science, Geography and History, is unit studies. We chose this method because we love 'hands-on' learning. Unit Studies approach a theme topic from several angles, encouraging activity and love of learning as well as discipline and responsibility. The Unit Study we are currently doing is 'Mammals.' First we choose a mammal we would like to learn more about. Then we spend two weeks, reading books from the library, watching videos, and searching websites.
