One way I do unit studies with my older ones is to use the Girl Scout Manual and adapt the activities for badges into a unit.

I also adapt and use Konos, but require a higher level of involvement. I make my teen help with the younger one. (Teaching is a good way to learn, too - have you noticed you're learning right along with them?)

Another idea we do is use one book - a textbook on either history or science, and base studies off of that. Look for historical novels, inventions of the time, etc. or Look for stories of scientists in that field of study and when they lived, etc. to link science and history. math is hard to work into a unit.

My other suggestion is to use your 4H office. For a small fee, you can get publications to help you teach all kinds of interesting things. It isn't just farming and pets and crafts, there are leadership training things, photography and much more. Follow some of those to related topics in the library and you have a unit study.

Hope this helps. :)
