Expedition Ireland Review

Here is our review of the Download N Go unit called Expedition Ireland. If you are not familiar with Download N Go, then you are in for a treat!  They are unit studies combined with lapbooking.  These unit studies are meant to last 5 days (but can go longer if you choose to do so).  And don't let the work lapbooking scare you!  It's really quite easy and the writer, Amanda Bennett, gives you links in the beginning that show how to make a lapbook.

I must say this is one of our FAVORITE units by far! I have always wanted to visit Ireland. I would love to want to one day take my family there. In doing this unit we were able to enjoy Ireland from afar.  The videos were enchanting.  My oldest kept one video on in the background because he loved the music so much!  He bookmarked it so he could listen to it all day every day.

There was so much to discover about Ireland.  From the legends, stories, scenery and history.  We learned so much about this beautiful country.   We thought it was so much fun reading the different legends involved in the Irish culture.  Some of the stories were great!  St. Patricks day was another great lesson.  And seeing my son drawing shamrocks made me smile!

I love how the DNG Unit studies incorporate so many aspects of learning.  I also love how the only thing I have to do is go to the library and borrow a few extra books (if you choose to do so).  I will say the books do add a lot to the unit.  We do try to pick up 1 recommended book for each day.  :)

So I hope this has encouraged you to give unit studies and lapbooking a try.  Use the Download N Go unit studies by Amanda Bennett!  They are wonderful and a great addition to any curriculum you are using right now.  :)
