George Washington DNG Review

If you read my review of the Ben Franklin DNG, you know how much I love anything history. So once again I was extremely excited to have the opportunity for our family to review the new George Washington Download N Go.

What an interesting man and a wonderful role model!

Download N Go is a comprehensive unit study 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.

These are a few of the books/videos we used this week.

This unit was jam packed with information, as well as, some beautiful activity pages filled with quotes and pictures from George’s life. I printed every single page to be included in our lapbook/notebook! Click on the picture below to view some sample pages.

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

Who was George Washington?
People & Places in George Washington’s Life
The Accomplishments of George Washington
Lessons to Learn from George Washington
Remembering George Washington

We spent time this week learning about our nation’s capital, what our president does, finding out more about several national monuments. While this unit covers a lot of history, we also talked about character traits and leadership skills. Math, Geography, and Art Appreciation are a few of the other topics that are included.

We even took time to throw George Washington a little birthday party!

Here are a few shots of our completed lapbook. It turned out so nice and we had a great day of review when we put it all together.
