Add Interest to Your Homeschool for Multiple Ages:
How to Use Montessori-Inspired Unit Studies
(A Little Bit or a Lot)

Deb Chitwood will describe how to use Montessori-inspired unit studies in your homeschool. Unit studies can be used throughout the year or only at certain times to add meaning and interest to topics. Unit studies are also a simple solution to multiple ages in a homeschool. All ages can take part in some unit studies. You can use a traditional Montessori curriculum with toddlers and preschoolers when older children cover a topic inappropriate for younger children. With unit studies, you can easily personalize homeschooling for a family of any size.

By the end of this presentation, you will understand the concept of unit studies in homeschooling, whether as a year-round curriculum or an addition to the homeschool during specific topics and understand how to use Montessori-inspired unit studies and a traditional Montessori curriculum to include toddlers and preschoolers in a multi-age homeschool.
