Expedition Ireland Download N Go Review

Our daughter will be studying abroad this spring in England, Ireland, and Scotland so we jumped at the chance to learn more about one of the places she will be visiting. We have really enjoyed all the Expedition DNGs that we have done.

Let me tell you a little bit about Download N Go in general. Each Download N Go is a comprehensive unit geared to K-4 students but could be easily modified to older or younger students. Everything you need is included –websites, videos, activity pages, lapbook components. Planning and Preparation is so easy because all the work is done for you. There is also an extensive book list included on each topic. Each unit is very reasonably priced and available for immediate download.

Now on to the beautiful emerald isle!

Each unit is broken down into 5 days/objectives. Here are just a few of the things you will be learning with the Expedition Ireland Download N Go.

Day 1: Where on Earth is Ireland?
Day 2: The Places of Ireland
Day 3: A Bit of History
Day 4: Cool Things to Know about Ireland
Day 5: Fun and Games in Ireland

These are a some of the books we used to go along with our studies. Click on the picture below to take a look at some samples from Expedition Ireland.

As I have said before, these units have so much meat in them that they can easily be spread out over a longer period of time. So we decided to dig in and spend a few weeks in Ireland.

Every day there are beautiful videos that really give you a feel for the country (and a deep desire to visit!!) This week we have spent time learning about some of Ireland’s major cities, animals unique to the country, geographical features, St. Patrick, and of course the little green guys! *smile* History, Geography, Science, Vocabulary…it’s all here!

I have to tell you I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these units!! They really have changed our homeschool in a very positive way!
