Fall is coming! It's coming slowly here, but I believe it's coming. :) And in anticipation of it, we did the Autumn Treasures Download and Go for our schooling this week.
What is a Download and Go (DNG)? In short, it is an e-book series that blends unit studies and lapbooking all in one printable product! You choose which activities are right for your family and you're ready to go! They've included videos, lapbooking activities, copywork opportunities, vocabulary/spelling words, a suggested book list for additional reading, family fun activities, and more! This is our fourth DNG (I think) and we've enjoyed them all for different reasons.
Here's what you'll explore when you jump in with Autumn Treasures:
Day 1: What is Autumn?
Day 2: Science Secrets of Autumn
Day 3: People and Places of Autumn
Day 4: Time for Tips and Treasures of Autumn
Day 5: Goodies and Gadgets of Autumn
I have to say, this was a different sort of school week for us, so it was good to have this unit to fit in without any preparation as we were revamping a few things, but we did a bare bones sort of week, so I didn't have anything to photograph. And because Autumn is something we've studied seasonally for several years now, I wasn't sure if this would be anything new for us. But I was not disappointed!
- talking about the Earth's tilt and rotation and the connection to our seasons.
- reviewing hibernation and migration in context of the correct season.
- the science behind how and why leaves change color.
And because fall is just creeping in by way of cooler nights, we weren't able to get out and enjoy the nature walk and perfect journaling pages offered, but certainly would have if it were the right time for us!
One other great feature of these units is that there are printables/activites at Mattie's level (pre-k) and Jacob's level (4th grade), so we can enjoy it together! Mattie loves getting to do "school" and I love having her included without any more work on my part! (I would say the average "perfect" age for these studies is K-2nd grade.)
