FREE Valentine’s Day Unit Study

I’ve updated and republished a super fun  FREE Valentine’s Day Unit Study this week, and wanted to add this list of great books, movies, hands-on activity guides, and other resources to go along with the unit.  This holiday is the perfect time to try a mini Unit Study (just one week) if you haven’t tried one before!  Valentine’s Day is packed full of history, stories of great courage and true love, literature, geography, and even MATH & SCIENCE!!
