Wild West Adventure Week

One of the most important things that I've learned over the homeschooling years has been the importance of keeping the sense of adventure in our homeschool. This week, we are offering a great collection of unit studies that can help you keep the adventures rolling and the savings rolling your way!

Pioneers - Unit Study Adventure (K-12) - $5

Discover the important role of the Pioneers in American history. Learn why the pioneers ventured out into danger, risking everything on the promise of a dream.  Learn about the life of pioneer, as well as the Famous Americans that helped the pioneering efforts to be successful and build this country.

Trains - Unit Study Adventure (K-12) - $5

Discover the important role of trains in American history.  Learn about the push to span the continent with the Transcontinental Railroad, finishing what Columbus began when he searched for a passage from east to west.  Enjoy train station video cams, steam engines, rolling stock, and more!

Davy Crockett - Download N Go (K-4) - $4 

As you begin Davy Crockett, get ready for a wonderful learning adventure about a great American patriot and leader. Your child will investigate who he was and how he spent his life helping America expand its borders, as well as representing the state of Tennessee in Congress. Davy Crockett is one of those patriots that we need to remember and share with our children. He was a brave pioneer, a husband and father, a patriot, a man of integrity, and a congressman. He loved to take a stand for the “common man.” Children can learn some valuable lessons from his life.

Come follow the pioneers across America, from the Mississippi and on to the prairies and the far West. Let’s learn about their amazing endurance and perseverance, their commitment and their faith. These brave people traveled great distances with Conestoga wagons and prairie schooners, vehicles that you and I would never consider driving down a country lane, let alone cross-country!


One of the most exciting things that you can do with your child is announce that you are all going on an adventure to a new place, and this study does just that. What child doesn’t enjoy the idea of heading off into an unknown place to discover treasure and meet new animals and people? Your student will journey along with Lewis and Clark and their team, mapping their trip and learning about the mission that President Jefferson eagerly sent them on to help the new young country.

  1. My favorite tea time memory is drinking tea with my grandmother. Growing up she always had a tea kettle boiling and often got busy doing chores outside and forgot about the whistling kettle. She burned up many kettles over the years. NOW, at 86 she is still drinking tea and attributes her good health all these years to her tea drinking!
