Review: Download N Go - Expedition Ireland

Our family just got back from another fun trip from across the ocean, Ireland.

Ireland is one of the places on the top of my list to visit so when the review team was asked to use this unit, I jumped at the chance. I love anything I can get my hands on about Ireland and I was hoping that my kids would enjoy the adventure too.

As you might have guessed, this was another great Download N Go unit by Amanda Bennett full of great links and activities that kept my kids' (ages 6 & 8) attention and even drew in my seventh grader because of the animals studied. I was even taken back to my childhood with the study of Irish Setters because I used to have two as a child.

This unit covered history, measurement, geography, reading, rituals, animals, legends and more all in just five days. There is so much included, you could easily stretch it out into more days if you like. We were able to accomplish our daily goals through the following objectives:

Day 1: Where on Earth Is Ireland?

Day 2: Some of the Special Places in Ireland
Day 3: A Bit of History

Day 4: Cool Things to Know About Ireland

Day 5: Fun and Games in Ireland

I was disappointed that our local library system did not have but one or two of the books Mrs. Bennett recommends but we did find others to substitute and quite a few films on the animals discussed.

Expedition Ireland would be a great unit to have to use if you are studying geography in your home. You can purchase the unit for instant download here for $7.95.

If you would like to see what others on the review team are saying about Expedition Ireland, then you can go over to our Blog Tour.

Another thing I wanted to mention is that Mrs. Bennett has developed and now has available 4-week unit studies for K-12. My family has already picked out a few they are interested in but the most popular is Auto Racing because we are huge Nascar fans. Where else can you buy a unit full of activities for 20 days for all ages for only $10.95? There are 19 titles available at this time.

Disclaimer: I received Expedition Ireland absolutely free in return for my honest review of the product. I received no other compensation for my review.
