Lessons from the Hen House

Carol Alexander is a fellow homeschooler and homesteader. She has asked me to review her e-book, Lessons from the Hen House. What a pleasure.

Inside this little book you'll find lesson plans to use for your homeschool based on the homesteading (in this case raising chickens) you are already doing. I am a big fan of unit studies and what could be more relevant to a homesteader than a unit study on chickens?

There are lessons for all ages. Math lessons have students figuring sales tax. Science lessons range from dissection to the pecking order. There are language lessons, art lessons, geography, and home economics.

Carol is working on a series of books for homesteading homeschooling lessons. In addition to this ebook, Lessons from the Seed Catalog is also available. These are available at Lessons from the Homestead. She also has a free newsletter available.
