Download N Go: Tremendous Trees – Review

Tremendous Trees is the newest Download N Go title in the series by Amanda Bennett!  These unit studies can be used as a curriculum on their own, or combined with whatever you are using in your homeschool.  I received a copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review :)

What will your P/K to Gr. 4 child learn over this 5-day unit study?

  • Day 1: Trees – What Are They?
  • Day 2: Getting to Know Trees
  • Day 3: Trees Provide Many Gifts
  • Day 4: The Science of Trees
  • Day 5: Cool Things About Trees

As always with Download N Go titles, I am impressed with the breadth and depth of this unit study.  Tremendous Trees includes links to videos and interactive websites, a list of book suggestions for each day, spelling/vocabulary words, quotes, Bible study, games, colouring pages, beautiful pictures, activities, jokes, and crafts.  There is also a lapbook included for those who enjoy lapbooks in the course of their homeschooling, and if you’re new to lapbooking there is an article with links included just for you.  It really does cover all the subjects – your child will learn so much and enjoy doing so!

I particularly like how trees from the Bible are studied – from the Garden of Eden to trees Solomon used to build the temple, and don’t forget the cross.  There are also some very clever things included that I wouldn’t have thought to include in a tree study, such as chainsaw art and totem poles.  My 6 year old daughter was delighted to start studying trees at this time of year – we are surrounded by forest here in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and the fall colours are at their most vibrant.  She has thoroughly enjoyed working on the lapbook portion of the study.  We’re looking forward to having an “eat from the trees day” as suggested, and scaring up a sheet to make a fall tablecloth out of – what great ideas!

Tremendous Trees is available for download now in The Schoolhouse Store for just $6.36 until October 31st! (regular price: $7.95).  There is also a Pick-4 Download N Go bundle option for $30 and a Pick-19 for $151.05.
