Download N Go Unit Studies Review


I received 2 of the Download N Go Studies (Davy Crockett and Whales) to check out with my kids and I am impressed. Everything you need is right there and ready for you. I have children ranging from almost 2 to almost 14 and these studies could be used with any and all of them. My almost 2 year old sat on my lap totally enthralled as we watched some of the videos on whales that were in the Whale Unit. He loved it! Where as with my older kids a simple trip to the library to maybe pick up a couple supplements on whales to make the unit right at their level too would be fine but not even totally necessary. I'm a little new to the lapbooking and unit studies, I've always been a pretty conventional homeschooler, but Download N Go would fit into our lives perfectly. It looks to me like each unit is designed to take about a week so it would be perfect when you want to add something in or take a break from the "norm". I love it and plan on checking out more of their studies!
