We live near Louisville, Kentucky where the Kentucky Derby is run each year. From April until the first Saturday in May the area is a buzz with all things Kentucky Derby. People around here, my immediate family members included, live, breathe, and eat horse racing this time of year. While there are many things associated with the Kentucky Derby that I am morally opposed to I still find this time of year a magical time.
One of the lovely ladies in a homeschool group I am a member of has written a unit study on the Kentucky Derby that is complete with a lapbook to use alongside the study. You can find her free unit study for free here at Homeschool Share. Not only did Marcy write this wonderful unit study but she is also a blogger, so be sure to visit her on her blog Ben and Me for more homeschool inspiration.
Marcy's Kentucky Derby Unit Study focuses on the fun parts of the Derby including the horses, the people who care for the horses, and the festivals surrounding the Derby. She does not mention anything about gambling or betting anywhere in her study.
