Catholic Heritage Curricula Italy Unit     
Catholic Heritage Curricula provides an elementary school level Social Studies unit that explores nine countries including Italy.  A four week plan allows for two days of studying Italy each week.  See Tour a Country lesson plans at Catholic Heritage Curricula Learning about Other Lands.  I recommend purchasing these plans to participate in the studies of the other countries.  Rather than completing the CHC brochure, Ryan and I made a Keynote presentation on our Apple computer.  We used part of CHC’s schedule, resources, and enrichment activities, as our guide.
