Download N Go Review~~Expedition Ireland

Thank you to Download N Go and Amanda Bennett for sending me this unit study free to review in exchange for my honest review.

Ireland is one of those countries we want to visit.  Since it is impossible for us to go there right now we did the next best thing.  We studied it with Download N Go.  This study was jammed pack full of great information, yummy recipes, and videos.  Not only did we learn about Ireland but we EXPERIENCED it as well.  Download N Go studies keep you interested in the subject.  Not once this week has the kids been "bored" with learning.  Our week looked something like this:

Day 1: Where on Earth Is Ireland?
Day 2: Some of the Special Places in Ireland
Day 3: A Bit of History
Day 4: Cool Things to Know About Ireland
Day 5: Fun and Games in Ireland

When we sat down to learn about Ireland I asked my children, "When I say Ireland what is the first thing that comes to mind?"

Katrina-cool dancing

Doing this helps me focus on things they do not know.  Although the dancing is something I've always been drawn to regarding Ireland.  We love the Irish music!  It is so soothing and relaxing.   Something else that comes to my mind when thinking about Ireland is potatoes and castles.  Expedition Ireland is jammed packed full of beautiful videos and pictures of Ireland.

Each day we learned a word of the day.  This is a great way to expand your child's vocabulary.    I even expanded my knowledge of different words used in Ireland.  I will not go into anymore detail on will just have to go and get this unit study.  The Expedition series of Download N Go will fulfill your child's geography requirement.

For ONLY $7.95 here is a peak of what you will get:

You can also take a peek inside the unit HERE.  March is the perfect month to be learning about Ireland.  Instead of just "celebrating" St. Patrick's Day make it an experience for your children by taking them on a journey without leaving your home.
