Sugar & Spice Unit Studies Review by Lisa Barthuly

Marmee Dear
PO Box 425
Honea Path, SC 29654

Marmee Dear combines homespun fun with learning in her Sugar & Spice unit studies. The five units in the series (Ginger, Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, and Sugar) cover the history of the spices, what they are used for, recipes, word finds, math, geography, reading lists, . . . the list goes on. Did you know the botanical name of ginger is Zingibar Officinale? The BEST part (besides working side-by-side with your children) is tasting the results of the wonderful baking and cooking projects incorporated into the studies.

These are adorable little booklets full of FUN learning. It's hard to believe Marmee packed so much into them. Sugar & Spice is a great break from regular lessons during holiday time--or anytime, for that matter! Highly recommended!

My girls and I have done these together and loved them. They really lend themselves to any age range--perfect to do as a family! Enjoy!
