Terrific Tigers - Download N Go Review

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, OH MY!!  So I get a little nostalgic when we were offered the chance to do a review for Download N Go's unit called Terrific Tigers.  The first thing I thought of was the line from the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy, Scarecrow & the Tin Man were walking through the forest to get to the Emerald City.  But did they run into any tigers, fortunately (or maybe not) they didn't.  Depends on your point of view.  And after doing this study, I think they might have benefited by having a Tiger along.

For those of you who are not familiar with Download N Go, this is a WONDERFUL way to do learn about so many different topics.  It is mainly unit study based (where you study one topic at a time) and it incorporates lapbooking.  (don't worry, lapbooking isn't a scary thing)  All the information on how to put together a lapbook is in the first few pages of a Download N Go (which will be referred to as DNG from now on).  The DNG is great because it has all the information you need.  No need to do any planning/research on your part!  And this is particularly helpful if you are a mom of 3 boys!  (or any number of kids honestly)  To have everything done for you is such an amazing thing and I am so grateful that the author, Amanda Bennet, does all this for us.



Terrific Tigers was absolutely wonderful!  To start off you get to see some amazing video's about baby tigers.   My kids asked if we could have one and I then asked them how they were going to afford feeding them as they need to eat a good bit of meat.  :-)  There are so many amazing facts about them that you uncover doing this unit study.  Each day we learned something different, saw great videos, viewed websites with awesome information.  There were things that we didn't know about these amazing animals that were discovered this past week.

It was also a real eye opening unit for us.  To realize that these precious animals are on the brink of Extinction is just so sad.  We were put here to take care of God's creation and it was hard for my oldest to realize that there are people who don't think that God's creation is special and that we are to take care of it.  He now wants to let others know that these creatures are important to God too.

The best part was while during this study we found out, not through DNG but through our local Zoo, that the Siberian Tiger there just had a fresh set of cubs!  We were thrilled to see pictures of these beautiful animals and read the blog about them.  What a way to finish our week on Terrific Tigers.   BTW here is the blog about the new baby Tigers at Pittsburgh Zoo.

So, what will you learn about in Terrific Tigers?  Take a look what the main topic for each day covers.

Day 1: What Is a Tiger?
Day 2: Getting to Know Tigers
Day 3: Where Are the Tigers?
Day 4: The Science of Tigers
Day 5: Cool Things About Tigers
