DNG's Rocking Robots Review

If you have science loving kids like I do, they are going to love this one!

Download N Go units are a comprehensive unit study geared toward K-4th grade students. Everything is organized and prepared for you. It includes videos, websites, activities, and lapbook components. You don’t have to spend a lot of time doing research, all the work is done for you. There is a comprehensive book list included for each unit. I usually spend 30 minutes to an hour reading over the material, printing, and putting books on hold.

We are so excited to use Rocking Robots! Even dad wants to be in on the action.

Take a look at what we will be studying:

Day 1: What Is a Robot?

Day 2: The History of Robots

Day 3: People and Places of Robots

Day 4: Science Secrets of Robots

Day 5: Goodies and Gadgets of Robots

Every day is filled with fascinating videos, as you learn all about what robots are and how they are used, as well as, Leonardo DaVinci, planets, and the human body. There are experiments, recipes, and even fun costumes to make. We have done several of the Download N Go units and I am always amazed at how much is included in each unit but not in an overwhelming way and this one is no exception. The information is presented in an inviting way and the layout is bright and attractive. The lapbook is a great keepsake and can be used for later review. My kids are always so proud of their work and take turns keeping it in their rooms.

My boys, who can never get enough science, were completely intrigued! I love seeing them so excited about learning. I used to spend hours trying to put together studies to keep my kids passions alive but now it has been done for me. These units have truly changed our homeschool!

If you are someone who has never tried unit studies or are uncomfortable creating your own, you should definitely give
Download N Go a try. They take all the work out of it for mom and your kids will love it!
