The Green Level Unit on King Arthur and the Middle Ages is designed to teach your child not only this classic legend but also historical information about England in the Middle Ages. Learn about knights, castles, and kings in an interactive way that also leads you to explore topics in science, language, math, and more. Designed to cover all subject areas, without letting your student know how much they are learning, this unit is not only educational but fun and engaging!

Green Units are ideal for children ages 8 – 12 who can listen appropriately to or read chapter books. Children studying at the Green Level should be capable of engaging appropriately in discussions about abstract ideas and completing tasks requiring some planning.
These Green Units are not your typical literature-based unit studies. Five Senses Literature Lessons units are designed to teach topics far beyond just language arts. Science, history, geography, life skills, and art are all covered in a fun and engaging way. Your child will work on reasoning and fine motor skills, do hands-on activities, and watch videos that take their learning further than just a typical book-based program.
Because health and science topics are a part of real life, the literature creates openings for lessons that directly relate to the story. And because it is how children learn best, each unit is full of hands-on go-along activities and videos that bring the story to life.

Children learn best when all of their senses are engaged, and the topics are presented in a way that respects childhood development. Too many curricula for children skip over the importance of play and exploration, moving straight into reading, writing, and math. Subjects are often taught in a way that isolates them from other ideas making them feel more foreign and complicated than they need to be.
As an occupational therapist, I have a unique perspective on childhood development. Children use games and play to explore their world naturally. By using play and fun activities, you can tap into their natural curiosity and feed their minds while helping them develop the physical skills needed for success in academics and life.
Five Senses Literature Lessons is designed to be used with any child, regardless of where the child stands concerning academic readiness. Such flexibility is possible because the curriculum is developmentally appropriate and respects the child. It is adaptable and expandable to suit your child’s interests and pursue growth in your child’s abilities in a gentle and fun way.
Home education should be engaging and fun for both you and your child. Five Senses Literature Lessons provides you with support, inspiration, and a simple, developmentally appropriate framework for educating your child.
