I received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While I consider it a privilege to receive free products to review, my review is my honest opinion and thoughts of the product.
We received a free copy of Download N Go’s Whale Tales Lapbook Unit Study. It is a 5-day unit study about whales. If you are new to lapbooking, that’s ok because we were too. Download N Go provides links to video and article resources to teach you how to put your lapbook together.
Our children loved the hands on activities of coloring, drawing and assembling their lapbooks. They also loved the videos of the whales that the study provided. The unit study even included a list of books to read, as suggestions. We basically only used the online activities and that was plenty to keep my seven children busy for a good half hour to an hour, if not longer on some days. That included printing off the sheets from the unit study too since I never seemed to get them done ahead of time.
We not only enjoyed the educational facts of the whale study, but also the biblical study of Jonah and the Whale that was also a part of the unit study.
The unit study covered a different type of whale each day or at least a different aspect about whales and had plenty of activities within the download itself or online. The suggested book list was extra for us that I hope we can go back through and print off and see which books our library has or can get for us. Due to the ages of our children, it will be easy to cover the same material but in a different way the next time around.
The great thing about unit studies is that they are suitable for a multi-age group. We are quite familiar with unit studies as we have done those a lot over the years.Overall, we really enjoyed our first experience with lapbooking and with Download N Go.
