O is for Olympics Part 2 with GIVEAWAY!

Did you pick up the free Olympics Printables I posted yesterday?? 

Today I have another great Olympics resource for you!

One lucky reader will win the NEW Winter Games 2014 Unit Study by Amanda Bennett!  It is available for $10.95.

I haven’t gotten to take a look at it yet (since it’s not released), BUT we love Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett, and frequently incorporate them into our homeschooling.  I have no doubt that this unit study will live up to the awesomeness that are Amanda Bennett unit studies!

Here is the lowdown of what this unit study is all about:

The story of the Olympics is so rich in history, geography, science, fascinating ideas, and events. When learning about the Olympics, you will see the important role that science plays in the games—laws of physics coming in direct conflict with the wonderful bodies that God created for each of us. The deep and personal commitment of the athletes to achieve their best performance, their faith, concentration, endless training, and reaching out to help each other—all of these are lessons in the importance of goal-setting, persistence, and personal values for students of all ages.

With thousands of athletes contending, the events, countries, and personal stories of the competitors can be overwhelming. It will be well worth the study for those families interested in history, countries of the world, sports, and human abilities. As you study the Olympics with your family, try to focus on some of the following areas, depending on the ages and interests of your children:

  • History of the ancient Olympics
  • Science and the laws of physics in sports
  • Sports and the human body
  • World geography, both ancient and modern
  • World politics and its influence on international sports

  6. We've never done a Unit Study before - from anyone! I think that the Olympics one would be a great place to start - especially since it's a special - once every 4 years type of thing!

  8. We liked the Magnificent Moon unit study. Amanda has soooo many awesome units available - it is hard to pick just one that we would like. I know that my daughter would enjoy the Handsome Horses, Easter, and Dolphin Days studies. I want all of the American History, Passport Geography, Classic Geography, Holiday, and American Government units. They ALL look outstanding! Thank you for hosting this giveaway! We would LOVE to win it!

  9. I haven't tried any of these as we are just starting our homeschool journey. I'd have to say anything involving animals would be my favorite right now because that is what my daughter wants to learn about, anything and everything animal.

  10. We'd love the Winter Olympics, but other than that I think my boys would want to do the Chocolate one, and I would enjoy the Israel one.

  11. We love the Olympics, so the Winter Olympics one would be great. Other than that I think my boys would enjoy the chocolate one, and I would love to do the one on Israel.
