Homeschool Legacy - Horsing Around

From the website:

"Once-a-Week Unit Studies by Homeschool Legacy  enable you, as their name implies, to set aside one day each week to lay down the text books, and inject fun, creative, hands-on learning into your homeschool week. Throughout the week, your family will enjoy outstanding library selections, creative assignments, an occasional field trip, and a family game or movie night, each revolving around your unit study. And…Once-a-Week Unit Studies accommodate both Boy Scouts and American Heritage Girls!"
4-week unit study,  Appropriate for grades 2-12

Cost - $15.95

(FREE SHIPPING on all orders of $50.00 or more!)
Once-a-Week Unit Studies range in length from four to six weeks and in price from $15.95 to $19.95 depending on the length of the unit study.
Our favorite way to learn at Bentz Test Laboratory is with unit studies, so you can imagine it wasn't hard to find a willing tester for Homeschool Legacy's - Horsing Around Once-A-Week Unit Study!
My tester is a "horse-crazy" pre-teen girl.  Perfect tester for this particular study, don't you think...
She was not disappointed!  In fact, she had so much fun the whole family joined in. This unit study is filled with suggested books to read, hands-on-activities to do together, independent study and research plus  merit badge requirements for Boy Scouts and American Heritage Girls (which we don't have any of...yet).
One thing I appreciated was that this was to be a supplemental once-a-week learning treat  (here's some scheduling tips to help you).   We used it as an incentive to work faster through those pesky daily subjects...like math.  I printed it out, put it in her binder - and she was off on her own adventure.  She used this study as her research for her homeschool interest class presentation.  She was delighted to have so much information to pick from, it's been hard to keep her to the alloted 3 minute time frame!  She's also busy planning the "Cowboy Fun Night" for us, using suggestions from the study. That's what I LOVE about unit studies - we all benefit!
Homeschool Legacy has many topics to pick from - I'm sure you'll find one that catches their interest, and more are on the way...
Check out the other members of the TOS Review Crew though here - several different studies were reviewed.

I was sent a complimentary download in exchange for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Review Crew.
