Comment: Amanda Bennett unit studies are excellent. I pick one to match every major subject we are studying, sometimes several. Recently, this year, we have completed horses ( after a field trip camping at Assateague island), the brain, Germany, China, Amelia Earhart and Cartooning. I think the value is great. Be prepared to print out a hundred pages or so for most unit studies. I usually set my printer to gray scale so I won't be spending an arm and a leg on colored ink.

Comment: We have used several of Amanda Bennett's Studies and they are awesome! I love all the links and the lapbook. We do not use it as our sole curriculum but for delight directed breaks or just to change things up!
Comment: Each year we have chosen 4 Unit studies to accompany our normal curriculum. It has been Amanda Bennett Unit Studies almost always. She has a way of adding ideas and insights that I have not gotten from other unit studies. I highly recommend TRAINS! It has kept my children's attention when the week has been long and we need a break. We turn to a unit study and the last one was, "all-aboard", enjoyable!
