Benjamin Franklin---Download N Go


Last month I shared with you about the "Kite Capers" Download N Go. What better timing to get the chance to review this month's Download N Go series titled "Benjamin Franklin". As I mentioned before these Download N Go series are designed for kids in K-4th grade. You can learn more about other Amanda Bennett Unit Studies by visiting http://www.unitstudy.com/ . For 5 days your kids will experience an exciting "hands on learning adventure" through interactive built in hyperlinks, five daily lessons with lapbook components for each day, suggested books to read, questions to answer, just for fun activities, and even fun family projects to do.


The Benjamin Franklin Download N Go can be purchased at The Old Schoolhouse for $7.95. In the Benjamin Franklin Download N Go you can expect your children to learn about his childhood, important people and places throughout his life, his accomplishments and inventions, as well as important character traits every child needs to learn. When I showed my son the unit study, he immediately remembered from last month about Ben Franklin's kite experiment. He was excited that we would be learning more about Benjamin Franklin. There are some links to videos in this unit as well. My son likes watching videos to help him getting a better understanding of what's going on. We also enjoyed learning some of Ben Franklin's famous quotes.

As with many unit studies you are incorporating learning in more than one subject area. That helps you to not have to worry about having something extra planned to do because you're getting different subjects covered in one unit. In this Download N Go series you can expect to cover spelling, vocabulary, history, and science. If you have not tried one of Amanda Bennett's Download N Go units I encourage you to give them a try. You never know if this may be just the thing you're looking for to bring a new flavor to your kids learning experience.
