“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
This post is honestly more of a collection of links that I'm sharing simply to save time for others. I didn't have any greatly profound or original ideas when it came to sharing this book with my children. Instead I drew on the creativity of others and trust me there is a lot out there. I hope you find something here that you can use.
Extend through reading and writing:
*Yes, I am aware that Charlotte Mason did not support the use of unit studies. I don't really follow her method in a frantic "letter of the law" sort of way. I think her methods reflect boundaries within a fairly flexible educational structure. Her ideas provide the core of our learning, however, I'll adapt anything that I find educational, enlightening and lovely. This study is all of those.
Extend Through Math:
Extend Through Life Skills:
Extend Through Science:

Extend Through Art and Creative Play:
*Whatever you choose to use to extend this story I advise that you notoverdo it. This book is so visually beautiful that it's a pleasure to read. You won't want to overwhelm kiddos with extra "work" that distracts from the beauty of the story.
