We are proud to present materials that we have developed, tested and produced here at Christian Cottage Schools. The “flagships” are our Christian Cottage Unit Studies. After teaching and writing units for our CCS families for 15 years, we believe we’ve produced a unit study method that is easy on Mom, and fun for the children. Each volume contains 2-week and one-month units planned to include enough science, history, bible, creative writing, literature and fine arts activities for more than one year. They’re easy to use, and Christian textbooks can be used as resources. Four levels of fun and interesting activities are planned daily for first through twelfth grades. Lessons are prepared in a one-day-at-a-glance, easy to use format. No Gaps! Ability-leveled vocabulary and main points make mastery measurements a snap! A home education curriculum pre-tested by hundreds of home schooling families.
