Download N Go Summer Sensations Review and Giveaway

Many of you know that I homeschool my kids by having read my blog. I use what is known as the eclectic way of homeschooling, meaning I combine all sorts of different kinds of homeschooling together to make a curriculum that suits my children and I. The Unit Studies Method is one way I have done some of my curriculum. With the unit study method, we choose one topic and tie it into the different subjects somehow. We try to tie as many of the subjects in as possible for the study.

We love the Download N Go unit studies by Amanda Bennett because they are really fun and we learn a lot. We first learned about them on The Old Schoolhouse Magazine website. They focus specifically on content for K - 4th grade students. Each Download N Go unit study is a week long and has five daily lessons with book list suggestions, hyperlinks to go to online and learn and lapbook elements for each day. Lapbooks are a mini-book that you put together yourself covering key details that you've studied. They are a fun way to enhance the learning experience and give your child some hands on. All they need is a little bit of ingenuity and creativity. A few inexpensive items are needed for the lapbook: a simple file folder, a glue stick, safety scissors, a piece of ribbon, a stapler, and crayons or markers. The Download N Go unit study is complete and they are ready to use as soon as they are downloaded!

I received the Download N Go Summer Sensations unit study free to review and try out. It goes into depth about how seasons change, what summer is all about, how
shadows work, why trees are important in the summertime, and the history of ice cream. This unit study has full color pages that my kids can fill out. We loved the nature walks the best. My kids love getting outside and observing nature especially when they find treasures along the way and can document what they have found. We had a lot of fun with this unit study!

Download N Go unit studies are fun for homeschooling and during the summer for a fun learning activity. They are very affordable at $7.95 each and there are many titles available to purchase! Just go HERE for purchasing options.
