With Thanksgiving approaching Once-a-Week 6 Week Micro-Study Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims by Homeschool Legacy was a great study for my family and I to review. Unit Studies & Micro Studies are fun filled studies to learn about one particular theme or topic as a family.
Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims is a Once-a-Week 6 Week Micro-Study and is designed for children grades 1 to 8 and is packed full with information. This is a downloadable Grab-N-Go Micro-Study. During the six weeks of the study, every week has a different theme and you will learn American History, Bible, Literature, Vocabulary, History, and Government throughout the study.
The weekly themes:
- Week 1: The Scrooby Separatists
- Week 2: The Voyage
- Week 3: At Home in Plymouth
- Week 4: Happy Thanksgiving!
- Week 5: The Puritans
- Week 6: Merry Christmas!
Everything was easy to understand and plenty of information to study and explore. For older children you may be able to work on the study once or twice a week but my younger children (Third, Second, and First grades) found it to be a bit overwhelming and enjoyed working on it in 20-30 minute chunks. There are suggested read a louds that are provided but we chose to read books that are already in our home library. Also, included are a couple of games and recipes to try out. Due to allergies in the family, we did not try the recipes.
One of the things that I loved is that throughout the study there are clickable links that connect to websites with more information and my kids and I could explore. While the information was not necessarily included in the study ebook itself, I had the information readily available. Between the study and the links provided in the study my girls were able to explore where the Separatists came from, where they were headed, and where they eventually wound up. They had fun trying to figure out possible routes that the Mayflower during the pilgrimage to the United States. I even learned (or relearned) some information about the Pilgrims. The one thing the girls kept asking for were coloring pages to color while we were reading the books and information from the study. They enjoy having something to do while I am reading to them.
