Camping Unit Study {Free}

It’s summer. And what can be more fun (at least for the young people in your life) than camping! Camping: A Complete Unit Study is a free unit study written by Paula Miller that originally appeared in Home School Enrichment Magazine.

The unit covers math, science, Bible, reading, and writing.

Activities include:

  • Documenting the types of trees encountered and keeping a tree notebook.
  • Calculating the height of a tree.
  • Examining pond water.
  • Using a compass,
  • Going on a treasure hunt.
  • Identifying birds.
  • Exploring the different techniques of campfire building.
  • Journaling.
  • Many others.

No, we don’t want our camping trip turning into a “schooly” affair. But summer camping is a great opportunity to keeping ’em learning!
