Homeschool Unit Study Schedule for Year 3

Updated on October 1, 2014

Unit Study Schedule for Year 3

Are you looking for a fun way to introduce science and social studies unit studies into your homeschool calendar? Remove the burden of planning by following my easy-to-follow lessons! My Year 3 lessons are geared toward 4th-5th grade level children and their siblings. These are lessons I created to do with a weekly homeschool co-op. We meet each week for 2 1/2 hours and have 33 children between the ages of 1-13. Use these fun lessons with your family, co-op, or classroom!

What happened to this page?!?

THIS PAGE HAS MOVED.

Hubpages.com purchased Squidoo.com. In the middle of September 2014 they transferred over all the pages. All of my lessons are still here and are available for you to use. However, as you can see, not all the content transferred over to the new webpage. Hubpages.com does not allow for "Table of Contents" pages that have links to allow for you to easily navigate through the 140 lessons I have posted. Please visit the new page I created so you can more easily locate the lessons you would like to use.

I have re-posted this page, Homeschool Unit Study Schedule for Year 3, at https://funfreeunitstudies.wordpress.com/2014/09/30/homeschool-unit-study-schedule-for-year-3/ .

You can also find links to all of my unit studies and lessons at Fun, FREE Hand-on Unit Studies https://funfreeunitstudies.wordpress.com/2014/09/30/fun-free-hands-on-unit-studies/ .

      This is a great lense. I have always thought of homeschooling in the back of my mind, but I didn't think I could do it. This lense makes it possible. Thanks for the great ideas and programs.
