Why We Use Unit Studies
Unit studies are a big part of how we learn together as a family in our homeschool. We study geography, art, music, history, literature, and more with interest-led unit studies. Unit studies give us a unique opportunity to connect lots of different subjects and concepts under one umbrella topic that interests us.
Using unit studies in your homeschool is a great way to encourage your kids to deep dive into subjects they want to learn more about too. By using unit study plans, we can focus on the topics and skills our kids really want to learn. It’s a great way to encourage kids who might not typically be as interested in learning to engage with the lessons.
Incorporating the subjects you often don’t get to or projects that might require more prep in your unit study is a great way to ensure you’re still getting them in. Adding subjects and skills your homeschooler struggles with to a unit study can help encourage them to put in the extra effort needed to learn something new or challenging too.
A unit study approach can be helpful when you’re trying to cover a big time period or subject. Choosing a great book about the topic can give you a jumping-off point and help get your kids excited about learning too.
For example, our new Ancient Greece homeschool curriculum is built around the popular Percy Jackson book series. As we read the books, we will be engaging in fun projects, activities, and lessons all about Ancient Greece and Greek mythology.

Percy Jackson For A Literature-Based Approach To Learning
Are your homeschoolers fond of Camp Half-Blood? If you have a Percy Jackson fan in your homeschool, you won’t want to miss my new literature-based Percy Jackson homeschool unit study all about Ancient Greece. The book series by Rick Riordan is well researched and perfect for introducing your homeschooler to Ancient Greece and Greek mythology in a fun new way.
Percy Jackson is a relatable character that draws kids into the subject and gets them interested in ancient history. You can use the books in the series to introduce your homeschoolers to Greece, mythology, the Greek gods, the Greek alphabet, and so much more!
Why do we love literature-based unit studies so much? Stories are powerful things. They can make history come to life for our whole family.
The ancient world becomes interesting and memorable when we tell our homeschoolers about real people and events instead of just memorizing dates and names. A book series like this one is a great way to bring Ancient Greek mythology to life for our homeschoolers and immerse them in an adventure from another time period.
