We are so happy to be working with Homeschool Legacy for this review or Christmas Comes to America. It is just wonderful to get a chance to see how the holiday has changed over time to become the holiday we know and love here in America.
Get so much out of your Christmas Comes to America Once-a-week Unit Study
Last year Monkey joined American Heritage Girls. She loved it so much but now my husband is working Thursdays it is not something we can pull off for her with meetings going past the toddler’s bed times. Hopefully, that will change. In the meantime, we are using her book to work on badges and learn new things.
This Unit Study covers most of the requirements for the American Heritage Girls Music Appreciation badge. For younger girl’s the entire badge is covered. Older girls will need to do two of the requirements themselves. Both are fun research activities. This program also works for the Boy Scouts covering all 4 requirements for the Music Merit Badge. Older Trail Life boys can use it for the Make-Your-Own badge. It even includes 4H projects!
This once a week unit study is great for using with the entire family. Even the youngest kids find joy learning about new traditions and fun. I really love programs that I can make work for the entire family. It just makes things easier for me and more fun for the kids. When we work on subjects we can not do together I find myself torn in multiple directions making it a challenge for me.
This unit study works for families with multiple aged children
The Christmas Comes to America once a week unit study works towards Monkeys Music badge. Right as we work on homeschool with this easy unit study that we can do once a week for 4 weeks. Homeschool meets American Heritage for time saving and educational experience that lets us get more done in less time. while this is referred to as a Once a week unit study you will need to work on reading to go with the unit all week long. They even recommend read aloud perfect for the whole family. We like doing read aloud while the kids build with blocks, play with playdough, or work on crafts so it works well for us. Other books, music and video suggestions are all listed in the same spot making finding everything you need easy.

Christmas comes to America is a relaxing and unstressed unit study perfect for when we slow down to enjoy the holiday season. This time of year should be about enjoying our time together rather than rigorous academics. Families come together and discover the symbols, traditions, and customs brought to us by our Dutch, German, and English ancestors. How over time these traditions and cultures intermixed into what we know as the classic American Christmas.
Jump right in to discover history and geography while you make your own Dutch hot cocoa and homemade marshmallows. Plan a fun field trip and make Homemade cards for loved ones. Study the progression of American music and make a bird feeder for hungry birds. This relaxing biblically based Unit Study is perfect to enjoy during the holidays.
