Grab Download N Go Educational Curriculum

Download N Go is an online educational curriculum that follows a unit study/lapbooking approach to learning. These unit studies give you daily interactivity lessons.  Use them daily or spread them out into your learning schedule.  Once you purchase the Unit it is yours to keep, nothing is consumed and can be used over and over. Nothing else is required to purchase with the unit study.  Each unit list books to enrich your study, but they are not required.
The Download N Go unit studies include all the research that is needed for the unit study. This allows the teacher to pick up the unit and start teaching.  The prep work is done and hyperlinks are embedded right into the study to save you time.  
The integrated studies include: 
History, Spelling, Geography, Vocabulary, Literature, Writing, Science and Art!
The first unit study we reviewed was of the hero, Davey Crocket, "The King of the Wild Frontier," by Amanda Bennett and The Old Schoolhouse®. The unit is set up in a biography format. The study teaches about his childhood, education and family life. Davey Crocket's history is such an important part of our American history. The unit includes a timeline and a certificate upon completion of the study.  The suggested level of learning for this unit is K-4th grade.

 The lessons allow the student to travel with Davy from his early frontier life in Tennessee through his heroic efforts at the Alamo, investigating these daily objectives filled with high-interest fun in an interactive format: 

Day 1: Who was Davy Crockett?
                           Day 2:  People and Places in Davy Crockett's Life
       Day 3: Science Secrets of the Frontier
                   Day 4: Lessons to Learn from Davy Crockett
     Day 5: Remembering Davy Crockett
My daughter is in 5th grade and found that was still a great age to use this Unit.  The pictures and easy to read layout are a plus! The older children can explore the links listed on their own time.  All the sites were appropriate for children to view.  I really appreciate the links and the extra books that were recommended with the unit. Older grades can use this unit as a spring board into more reading and writing activities.  We can't wait to try out more themed unit studies by Download N Go.
