Download N Go: Summer Sensations Review and GIVEAWAY!



Summer Sensations from Download N Go is the perfect unit to ease out of Summer and into the school year. The subject is fun and entertaining. You might even forget it's school :). This is our third Download N Go and by FAR my favorite! I wasnt expecting much more then a simple study of the season and was so surprised at the unbelievable content in this unit! We didnt just learn about hot weather and the fact that the first day of Summer is June 21st {though that is very important since its my birthday ha ha!}, we learned lots of extra cool things-like who invented the snow cone machine-there should be a holiday for this guy!

What is Download N Go? Amanda Bennett and The Old Schoolhouse have teamed up to bring you the best of unit learning lessons. 5 days of fun, engaging learning that covers history, geography, reading, science, spelling, vocabulary, writing, art, and more all in one. You and your child choose the subject you would like to explore, download, print the packet and GO! At the end of the lessons you will not only have newly learned knowledge, but also a lapbook, and notebook for your reference {great for a portfolio}. The best part is that it is reusable. So, if you are like me and have multiple children, you only have to buy the unit once!

The Summer Sensations Download N Go is all about...you guessed it...Summer!



Turn school into . . . cool!
Make a splash to start the new school year --

Your child will investigate how seasons change,
what summer is all about, how shadows work,
why trees are important in the summertime,
and yummy--discover some history about
snow cones and ice cream!

And it's a great time to seize many of those cool summery interests that your kids are intrigued with.

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

Exciting changes abound for kids of all ages to experience, so why not take all of their pent-up excitement and enthusiasm and put it to good use
as they dive right into learning about summer
and all that it holds?

It's time to watch the trees grow and enjoy their shade,
feel the hot temperatures, take a plunge in the water,
and enjoy a slower pace of life as summer spreads
through the neighborhood.
