2022-2023 Main Lesson Block Plan

At Muya we study a single subject each month, living in that world together. While we cannot cover all the humanities blocks traditionally offered in Waldorf schools each year, we do cover a different range of grades' blocks annually so that everyone will access formative mythologies and histories of the world over the course of 3-4 years.
Here are the lands we are visiting this year:
