The beautiful songs of Christmas are a wonderful way to add music and FUN to your homeschool this holiday season. Music is an incredible way to touch your children’s hearts and help them feel God’s love.
This 36-page Unit Study centers on 5 of the best-loved Christmas carols: Silent Night, Handel’s Messiah, Good King Wenceslas, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, and O Holy Night. First, you’ll learn the history of each Christmas song, and the story surrounding it. You’ll listen to the piece, learn about the composer, the time period, and even have a chance to learn the music yourself.
As you study these Christmas carols, you will also learn about different instruments, Geography, History, the science of sound, and so much more. While this Unit Study is not about religion, it is presented from a Christian worldview.
