The Wild West Unit Study
Updated: Jul 16, 2020
It is finally summer and it is getting hot outside. June's patron resource pack is going to use this wild west unit. I have posted this unit before but have updated it to use Circle the Wagons as the game since it is available as a print and play game. It is small enough to bring on a picnic to play in the shade when you need a quiet break from running around. You can see our board game spotlight for Circle the Wagons here.
Our family has been devouring books since we subscribed to SCRIBD about a month ago. We were surprised to find out that it includes a free subscription to Curiosity Stream. That's a homeschool bonus! All the books in the unit are available on SCRIBD.
This unit study covers language arts, history, science, and art. You will be reading some great wild west books, learning about animals of the wild west, and playing Circle the Wagons. This unit includes a Minecraft project. It is geared toward grades 4, 5, 6, and 7 but can be adjusted for higher or lower grades. You can find the unit on our unit studies page.
This unit study contains a list of resources and activities for you to use in your studies. Choose those that will best suit your students, time, and learning environment. My hope is that you will enjoy the process of learning and not feel constricted by the timeline or activities. Make changes as they suit your needs and enjoy your time learning together!
Our unit studies are free thanks to the generosity of our patron. If you would like to support the making of our content, become a patron here for as little as $3 per month.
