Download N Go Review - Autumn Treasures

Download N Go Review – Autumn Treasures

Oh the beauty of Autumn.  This is such a wonderful time of year.  The leaves are changing colors, the air is crisp and cool & we are enjoying the beauty of God’s Creation.  Download N Go’s Unit called Autumn Treasures was such a great way to wind down our summer and prepare for fall. One can never get enough of the beautiful fall colors.  The reds, yellows, oranges and browns are just gorgeous!  We are blessed to live in an area where we can see all the changes.

My boys seemed to enjoy this study.   Jonathan, who is 8, did say that autumn made him sad.  When asked why he said it’s because the leaves, plants die and the animals either sleep or go south.  I had to remind him that it was only temporary and part of God’s design for Earth.  Jordan, who is 3, loves to sit with Jonathan and I while we work on the lapbook.  He always wants to be part of whatever we are doing.  These are a wonderful way to include him.

From discovering the how’s and why’s of the weather changing to enjoying some awesome information about apples, each day was a new experience.  The videos were captivating to the boys.  My personal favorite, since the boys didn’t know the band, was the one with the Moody Blues song.  I was singing along with the song while watching the video with the boys.  It was great.

Here is what was covered each day.

Day 1: What is Autumn?
Day 2: Science Secrets of Autumn
Day 3: People and Places of Autumn
Day 4: Time for Tips and Treasures of Autumn
Day 5: Goodies and Gadgets of Autumn

Download N Go Review - Constitution Celebration

Constitution Celebration Review

This review is for Download N Go's Constitution Celebration.  I am so excited to be asked to review this product.  With everything going on in today’s society I have wanted to do something like this for our schooling but didn’t know exactly where to begin.  This product gave us a great start!

The information in this unit study was well searched and very easy to follow.  We weren’t able to get any extra books from the library this time however, I don’t think we needed them as we had so much information already included plus I had some other books at home that went along perfectly.

The links to the videos were very good and kept my children’s attention.  (I have an 8 year old and our 3 year old watches with us)  There was even one particular video that had some of our favorite TV characters.

Each day covered different information about the Constitution.  The topics for this particular unit include the following.

Day 1:  What Is the Constitution?

Day 2:  What Is the History of Constitutions?

Day 3:  Constitutional Convention

Day 4:  Secrets of the Constitution

Day 5:  Goodies and Gadgets of the Constitution

We also worked on the lapbook (will have pictures soon) that was part of this unit.  The activities that went with this were great.  My oldest son loves to cut them out and put the lapbook together.  We also went to Washington DC while we did this study and we are incorporating some pictures from the trip in the lapbook.  That is another great thing that is great about these studies:  they can be done anywhere!

These unit studies provide so much flexibility!  They are such an easy way to do school.  All the work is done for you.  You just have to print what you want to print and use the information from the links to enjoy the study.  I am so glad to have been given this opportunity to review the products.  I wouldn't have thought that you could learn so much about one topic in a week but with the Download N Go products you really do.

Now for the one thing I have to say in my review.  I was provided a copy of this product for free for my honest review.

Download N Go Review & Giveaway - Pizza Party!

Who's ready for a Pizza Party?  My next review is for the Download N Go Pizza Party!  Can you think of anything better to study?  (well maybe chocolate, but that's the mommy in me talking here!)  Again, I was given a free copy of this product for my honest review.

When we began this study I knew my boys would be excited, but the word "excited" doesn't seem to describe how they felt when we began each day.  The videos and internet links were great!  My 3 year old just loved it.  Even though it doesn't count to his school yet, I was so thrilled to see him want to sit with his brother and I every day and work together.  It really was enjoyable for all of us.  :)

There was so much in this study too.  Between the famous people who lived in Italy to the cities with their famous buildings, the music and of course the food!  Italy is known for it's food and probably most famously for it's pizza.  Just typing my review about this study makes me hungry!  I guarantee that you will either be inspired to make your own pizza or order one from your favorite pizza place.

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="210" caption="It's a Pizza Party!"][/caption]

Here is the list of daily topics you will enjoy learning about with this study.
Day 1: Pizza—What Is It?

Day 2: The Story of Pizza

Day 3: Types of Pizza

Day 4: The Science of Pizza

Day 5: Let’s Have a Pizza Party
