Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Bugs Bunny Day Specials, and Cinco de Mayo Specials at

We love using Unit Studies here in our homeschool but sometimes life gets the best of me and I just don’t have time to gather the materials and activities together. Instead of beating myself up and feeling bad about it I know I can trust the folks over at to have something already made up that I can use for whatever adventure we are leaning towards.

This week they are having some great specials on the Mother’s Day unit studies as well as Father’s Day, and Bugs Bunny Day which I know my kids will be wanting to celebrate. They will also be having a Cinco de Mayo special from May 3-5 so be sure to check out that deal too!

Check out the specials below and then make sure to head over and enter into the giveaway! Good Luck!

Expedition Mexico

Are you ready for an education vacation? Not a vacation from education, but an educational vacation, without ever leaving home!

Which country boasts jungles, volcanoes, and Mayan pyramids?

Studying a country is a great way to discover amazing animals and geographical features with your children. Here are a few of the things that they will explore with this study:

  • Quest 1: Where on Earth Is Mexico?
  • Quest 2: Some of the Special Places in Mexico
  • Quest 3: A Bit of History
  • Quest 4: Cool Things to Know About Mexico
  • Quest 5: Fun and Games in Mexico

Mariachi bands often bring Mexico to mind, but what are they?
Exciting dances can be incredibly fun, and you may already know some of them.
X marks the place on the map—some you will have heard about . . . others will be new finds!
Iguanas are often green, but how long are they?
Cinco de Mayo is a holiday in Mexico, but do you know why?
Old pyramids remain after the Mayan civilization—no need to go all the way to Egypt!
