Download ‘N Go – George Washington E-book – Review

George Washington is the newest addition to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s Download ‘N Go series of e-books by Amanda Bennett.  I received this e-book in exchange for an honest review.

Now why you may ask, if you are Canadian, would I want to learn about a U.S. figure?  If you’re like me, you like to teach your children about our neighbours to the north.  I myself was rather tired of having no clue what all those television programs were talking about LOL, so I decided to teach my children all about American history in addition to Canadian history, and I learn along with them 🙂  If you’re an American, well of COURSE you want to spend some time on Washington!  Did you know that George Washington was the only President of the U.S. not to live in the White House?  Or that he was an early conservationist?  Learn these facts and a lot more in this unit study.

All Download ‘N Go titles include a week’s worth of activities.  The week’s topics for George Washington:
Day 1:  Who Was George Washington?
Day 2:  People and Places in George Washington’s Life
Day 3:  The Accomplishments of George Washington
Day 4:  Lessons to Learn From George Washington
Day 5:  Remembering George Washington

Poetry, art, history, geography, math, spelling, character, the Bible, puzzles & games, everything is packed into this e-book.  For those of you like me who love timelines, there’s even a George Washington timeline 🙂  As always with Download ‘N Go titles, a lapbook is included.  You can use the daily activities in the unit to complete the Lapbook by the end of the week if you like.  A huge selection of links relating to Washington along with book suggestions are included throughout leading you to wonderful sites with information, games, pictures, trivia, and online tours of Washington D.C.  If you are able to visit Washington as a finish to your study, it is a fantastic city for a family to visit – so much to see and do – I’ve been there with my family and highly recommend it.

This Download ‘N Go – George Washington e-book is available for download at The Schoolhouse Store for just $7.95 US.  You can Download ‘N Go today 🙂
