This unit study has been in the works for awhile. My students have recently just finished it and we used it for an entire semester! There was so much to explore around the world.

“Math on the Move” is a series of 24 primary and middle school math lessons. Designed to be used as stand-alone segments to address particular skill areas, each builds upon presumed knowledge taught in the prior lessons. Answers to “Try It” problems are at the end of each lesson and a separate pdf document is provided for the answers to the Practice Problems.

This is very exciting!
This unit study can be turned into a major world study, just by adding in current events happening all over the world. This option is best suited for high school students as an add on. However, you can explore current event topics with your 5th graders and Jr High schoolers too!
Another option for high school students, is turning this into a huge midterm study, that once completed, will cover a huge chunk of their grades. Since this unit study covers various subjects and math, your high school homeschooler can work on this without much parental assistance.
For Fifth graders and Jr High schoolers, the majority of the work can be done unassisted, however, there is research involved. I encourage parents to be with their students when researching online.
The book options for this unit are amazing! If your students love listening to books, then I encourage you to try audiobooks, they are A-MAZING and our current best friends.
You will get two free audio books! This plan is like the first one, just extra perks, like:
- Get a monthly credit to buy any title in our entire premium selection, regardless of price—yours to keep.
- 30% off all additional premium selection titles you want, plus access to exclusive sales.
All the resources from this unit has been thoroughly investigated and Mom-approved. I like to make sure that any site my kids visit, is safe. You and your student(s) will really enjoy this entire unit.
