I like the idea of my children learing in a way that includes many subjects around the study of a particular topic. For example: My daughter would like to study about space, during her study of this subject I would like to inlcude her math, science, history, language, art, even PE lessons. This is opposed to the one hour one subject typically taught in schools. My inquiry is, are there any curricula out there that approaches learning in this manner?

Thanks

That sounds like the Unit Study approach - perhaps you're looking for Konos, developed by Jessica Hulcy?

There's also a couple other Unit Study based curriculums here:

And you can find piles of unit study resources for specific topics through Google.
