Pizza Party

Our family was again blessed to have the chance to review another unit from Download N Go. You will want to read all the way down to the end for a sale announcement and another give away. Woo hoo!

This time we got to enjoy Pizza Party.

Each day we "traveled" to another part of Italy. While there, we learned about famous people such as Michelangelo and Vivaldi.

We also were able to include fractions, nutrition, art and an experiment or two.

For my 1st and 2nd grader I eliminated some of the writing and we did more verbal work. We also left out a few of the smaller activities due to time and age.

If your family likes to learn about new places or the way something is made, then I recommend this unit. I feel this unit had more hands-on activities than the previous one we reviewed and we still did not take part in all that was offered.

Please watch the slide show below and you can see some of our fun that my family had. When you run your mouse over the pictures, you will see the descriptions of each picture.

If you would like to read what other families thought about this unit, then you can find them all here.
