Reformation, Thanksgiving, Christmas: Holiday Unit Studies Available Free on the Internet

Many holiday unit studies are available for free on the Internet. In October, instead of focusing on Halloween, learn more about the Reformation, which officially began on October 31, the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the church door. In November, learn about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. In December, focus on the real reason for the season!

Most of these unit studies are Christian based. Those with asterisks are secular.
