About the event

George Washington Carver believed that spending time outdoors in nature observing creation was one of the best ways to spend time.  He encouraged people of all ages to take walks through the woods, or sit near a garden and observe the flora and fauna, the plant and animal life around.  While observing, try something else like sketching or writing a short poem or story as you are influenced by nature.  

We have prepared a new unit study on the farm about the life of Dr. Carver.  It will include a variety of activities and projects that center around his hobbies, academic interests as a student and his professional career as a university professor, scientist, researcher and extension agent.  Students will discover Dr. Carver’s work in conservation, regenerative agriculture, his love of painting, knitting, crochet and sewing.  See his correspondences with colleagues,and friends. Prepare recipes he created, design, gardens, observe fungi under the microscope, sketch, paint, write and join us on field trips. Become a citizen scientist, record your data and share it with organizations that welcome your findings.  

The weekday classes are designed for homeschooling families while the weekend extracurricular sessions are for any students regardless of the type of schooling they attend.  We are accepting donations for families that may require assistance.  

Why a unit study?

A Unit Study is a method that involves students learning about a subject or topic in ways that can motivate them to learn through hands-on and investigating activities and projects.  

“A unit study focuses on a specific topic, while delving into it more deeply than would a standard textbook. Unit studies allow you the freedom to immerse your children in virtually anything that interests them. They also tend to be more creative, offer more hands-on experiential learning, and allow you the opportunity to build a variety of school subjects around the focus topic.”

Teach Them Diligently What is a Unit Study?

We homeschooled our five children for a large portion of their academic life and unit studies were an integral part of their learning experience.  We are still involved the homeschooling community and hope to share our knowledge and experiences with families and students who would like to participate in this kind of learning process.  

Students will participate in reading , writing exercises, observing and journaling, conducting experiments, collecting data, cooking, designing and more!  

If you can't attend weekly please consider our Weekend Workshops that will have the same content.
