Easy Fall Unit Study for Homeschoolers

Now that fall is here, celebrate by going outside and making hot apple cider, but celebrate in your homeschool, too with a fall unit study!

I like to celebrate each season by creating homeschool unit studies surrounding the current season. This keeps our kids interested in learning and helps to prevent boredom after school is no longer new. We try to do at least one seasonal activity per week, but my kids are the happiest if we can fit in one seasonal activity per day.

Here are some of the things we’ll be studying this fall in our homeschool fall unit study!

Use these ideas to create a unit study surrounding fall topics. Add in additional ideas that your kids love for a well-rounded fall unit study that everyone in the family will love!

  • Bake a pumpkin pie and discuss the science behind the process!
  • Create fall crayon rubbings of leaves, rocks, acorns, pine cones, and other natural objects to learn more about their shapes.
  • Read books about fall. Our family loves reading Little House in the Big Woods during the fall.
  • Host a fall pie-making party with other homeschooling friends.
