    Free Vikings Unit Study

    Okay guys, I’m excited to finally share our Vikings Unit Study with you!

    I’ve been talking about this unit study for the last few weeks in my videos and newsletter and now it’s time to share it.

    My original plan for this unit study was just to grab a few good books, some relevant information and random free worksheets from online but Jared took my tiny idea and made it into something awesome!

    A FEW DISCLAIMERS

    I have a few disclaimers about the unity study before we get started, you can watch the video below or read on for my disclaimers and how to download the unit study.

     

     

    ONE: We made this unit study specifically for our kids levels and interests so while our son was in grade two and our daughter was in grade five the workbooks are not specifically “grade two level” and “grade five level”.

    TWO: We’ve only included the workbooks our kids used and don’t have others for other ages. We do plan on making more unit studies in the future that will include a range of ages.

    THREE: I didn’t include an answer key, future unit studies will have them.

    FOUR: Feel free to make this unit study work for you, I explained a few different ways on how to do this in the video.

    Bird Watching Journal – A Printable Nature Study Journal

    Every spring I get really excited about birds.

    I never realize how many birds have migrated and left us until they start to come back.

    Hearing and seeing the different kinds of birds return is a sign that spring is really here. It’s the feeling of anticipation for the warmer days to come.

    In the last couple of years I have made a point of paying attention to the birds that I see and trying to figure out what kinds of birds they are.

    To be honest, growing up my parents used to have a bird identifying book by the back deck door (along with a pair of binoculars) and I thought they were crazy.

    Now I’ve be come that person. (Actually, I don’t have the binoculars yet, but I’m thinking about it!)

    I love trying to identify the birds that we see at the pond by our home, the birds that frequent our bird feeders and the ones that I enviously watch in my neighbor’s more bird-friendly backyard.

    This year I decided to make my bird watching an official thing and drag the kids along.

    And by official thing, I mean keep track in a bird journal.

    So I spent a bit of time making us each printable bird watching journals and I knew if I was going through the work of making them for us, I wanted to share them!

    The journals are currently available for free but I am working on putting together a printable shop again and so they will eventually go up in there. But I can guarantee they will be free for at least a week.

    I made a few different cover options so we could tell ours apart and each have one that appeals to us:

    a little birdie cover – my son chose this one!

    Bird Watching Journal - nature study printable journal

    nesting cover

     

    Bird Watching Journal - a printable nature study journal

    feathers cover – this is mine!

    all the birds cover – this one is the one my daughter chose

     

    My plan is for us to keep these in a binder but to go on regular bird watching “expeditions” (honestly, some days this may mean looking outside the window or hanging out in our backyard, while other days it will more of an outing).

    When we go out to do some bird watching we’ll just take a sheet or two on a clipboard for ease of use. Though another good option would be to get them printed and bound.

    If you use one of the bird watching journals I would love for you to tag me over on Instagram – @intentionalhomeschooling so I can see all the birds you have observed.

    You can download the Bird Watching Journal here.

    Like I said, they will be free for a limited time but will soon be going up in my shop. If you want more free printables be sure to sign up for my newsletter, I will occasionally be having more freebies and my subscribers will be the first to know about them!
