What a fun way to learn about the great men and first ladies who helped shape our nation! These extraordinary men and women were blazing trails and setting countless precedents for future United States presidents and first ladies to emulate.
This lively, four-week micro-study will introduce your family to George and Martha Washington, John and Abigail Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James and Dolley Madison while helping you get to know their personalities, as well as the history and politics of their times. In addition, your children will discover one of each of these four president’s favorite foods and will even learn how to cook them!
Once-a-Week Micro-Studies (Grades 1-8) offer the same great quality you have come to expect from Once-a-Week Unit Studies, but provide your children with a thorough understanding of the study topics in only three, 30-minute assignments each week!
In company with the Homeschool Legacy tradition of making serious learning fun, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies provide students with creative and engaging assignments, each designed to get them excited about learning. Our digital Micro-study format also gives parents the added advantage of utilizing an assortment of educational links to further enhance their children’s learning experience.
As with Once-a-Week Unit Studies, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies typically suggest an enjoyable classic or award-winning family read-aloud that pertains to the study topic.
Flexible as always, Once-a-Week Micro-Study weekly assignments may be completed all in one day, spread throughout the week, used as an integral part of your unit study curriculum, as a hands-on supplement to any curriculum, or as a refreshing change of pace from “school as usual.” The choice is yours!
