Consider This by Karen Glass
There’s an idea popular in some homeschooling circles that the classical model and Charlotte Mason homeschooling are very different things. The first is for serious scholars, the second is a less rigorous course of study.

In her book Consider This: Charlotte Mason and the Classical Tradition, Karen Glass clarifies both the historic tradition that Charlotte Mason writes out of and the sometimes limited understanding of the classical tradition.

Consider This is a rich feast that will deepen your understanding and give you much food for thought on classical and Charlotte Mason education.

Learning History While Playing Cards
Historical Conquest is a game that requires thought. With that said, you will find yourself reading the cards (therefore learning history) while you wait. (I saw my eight-year-old doing this!)

Coping with the Cold NaturExplorers Unit Study
"It’s the perfect time of year to take on a winter themed nature study in our homeschools. I’ve chosen a NaturExplorers product from Shining Dawn Books and +Cindy West to look at how animals cope with the difficult winter season. We often watch the birds visiting our feeder during winter and wonder how they survive such bitterly cold conditions so this seemed like the perfect unit study for us to tackle."
