Download N Go review~~George Washington

Just in time for his birthday we were able to review George Washington this week!   He is one of our favorite historical people.  Our week looked like this:

Day 1: Who Was George Washington?
Day 2: People and Places in George Washington's Life
Day 3: The Accomplishments of George Washington
Day 4: Lessons to Learn From George Washington
Day 5: Remembering George Washington

Who knew that you would be learning fractions while studying George Washington!  That is what I love about Download N Go....your kids are learning all types of things centered around a topic.  I've said this before, but Download N Go are made with children in grades K-4 in mind.  But I have been using these as a spring board and add more to fit the needs of our family.  So do not let the ages keep you from using Download N Go with  your older children.  I let the children pick a day, they then research the information for that day.  They are then the teacher of the day!  It really is great.  Gets the older children working on their leadership skills.

A peek at what you get in the ebook:

The best quote we came across from this week is:

"It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible." George Washington 

If only our nation would come back to God AND the Bible.  Don't get me started on that one!!  Anyway...To date this has been our favorite unit.  Do you want to read more about what other review team members have been saying?  Go HERE to see them.
