Pond Study Unit

Ponds are a summer staple. This printable study unit will help kiddos learn all about ponds and their ecosystem. It includes a pond visit journal, which would pair great with a fishing or canoe trip.

Ocean Study Unit

I promised an ocean study unit for older kids – and here it is. I know you’re probably looking at this picture and thinking it just isn’t going to cut it with your teen or preteen, but I want you to take a second look. The ocean zones, animal identification and anatomy pages and research journal would be great for older kids. AND, as a bonus, you get a lot of great things your younger kiddos will love too.

Weather Study Unit

We love this study unit year round and actually use some pieces of it on our wall as a staple.
