How are Micro-Studies different from Once-A-Week Unit Studies?
Arrrrgh mateys and ahoy there landlubbers! Get ready to weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen because Pirates or Privateers: You Decide is unlike any pirate study you have ever seen. This intriguing four-week study begins by launching you thousands of years back to a time of ancient pirates. From there you will go on to explore the Golden Age of Piracy where cutthroats and scoundrels (and sometimes even heroes?) roved. Your voyage ends in the 21st century where you discover piracy is still alive and well. So, climb aboard for an exciting adventure! But, don’t worry…we promise not to make you walk the plank…or glorify the pirate way of life.
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 keeping with Homeschool Legacy’s mission 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 provides the added benefit of linking you to online educational resources to further enhance your micro-study experience.
As with Once-a-Week Unit Studies, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies also typically suggest an enjoyable classic or award-winning family read-aloud that pertains to the study topic.
Originally designed to be done slow-and-easy over a 4-week period of time, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies are also flexible enough to complete in just four days! That makes them the perfect alternative to “school as usual” and a valuable supplement and co-op resource. Once-a-Week Micro-Studies, and their activities included within, also make for a fabulous planning guide for hosting a fun, backyard summer camp! Either way, you’re sure to make serious learning FUN!
