What better way to kick off a school year that starts in July (ours kinda sorta did) with a unit study on the United States? My Emma already knew most of it, but she was still iffy on a few things so I wanted to go over them with her again and really cement it for her so that she doesn’t have issues later on. If you want to know why we moved to homeschool, that right there is your answer. My 10 year old was never really taught a lot of the things she should have been long ago. I digress though. This United States homeschool unit study was fun for her and for me and I’m sure your kids will love it just as much!

This unit doesn’t delve into any US History. It really is bare bones, United States geography and things like that. While I used it for my 10 year old, it would also be great for kids that are younger than that too. Like I said, we did it as a review unit, but it would be awesome for first time learners too! For the printables, I used bits and pieces from both sets. For the notebook journal, it comes with enough pages that we put together a binder notebook with a page or two on each state as she relearned the basics.

How the States Got Their Shapes – We watched Season 1 during the unit and she liked it so much that we’re currently watching Season 2 even after we’re done with the unit!


We did THIS Salt Dough United States Map. She and I both had a BLAST!


There you go! This unit was fun for her and me and she learned everything she needed to! I’m actually kind of sad that we don’t get to play with the salt dough more than we have! I might have to look into doing that!
