"As a child I was very fascinated with horses and always found them to be one of the most amazing creatures that God has created. Their beauty and grace is like no other. That's why I'm so excited about the Handsome Horses unit study!
Handsome Horses is packed full of great facts, history, science, math, drawing, Scripture and classic literture. What a fun way for your children to learn about this amazing animal. The daily video clips and questions are sure to peak your children's interest. You will cover history, Horse of the Day, spelling, vocabulary words and so much more.
One of my most favorite parts of the unit study, is the lapbook. I love crafts and so do my children, so this is great way for me to help my children express what they've learned in a fun way. I also love the fact that my children have a record of what they've learned and can look back at it any time they want in the years to come.
I love that the work has been done for me and all I have to do is open the unit study and start teaching. It is a great addition to my curriculum and it's very economically priced."
