Preparation and Supplies
The only preparation required is printing the lapbook pages, cutting them, gathering lapbook materials and books. To put the lapbook together you will need a few inexpensive items ~ a file folder, glue stick, scissors, brass brads, and crayons or markers.
My kids love learning about other countries and lapbooks so I was very excited when I receive Download N Go™ Expedition Australia to review.
So what are some of the fun things taught in Download N Go™ Expedition Australia?
This is an amazing unit study! It would have taken me weeks to put this much information together ~ lesson plans, book lists, internet and video links, creating or finding printables. The unit is designed to be completed in five days, I have younger kids so I would definitely slow it down and spread it out over a couple of weeks. Even though it is recommended for K – 4th grade, it could easily be adapted to include younger or older children.
- The lesson plans are easy to follow and the internet and video links are a great addition to the learning experience.
- The printables contain beautiful graphics and colorful images.
- The book suggestions include books for different ages and reading ability. I was pleased to find that our library carried many of the recommended books.
- A great list of Fun Family Ideas. The list included everything from recipes to how to make a boomerang!
- You can use the units year after year.
- The price ~ $7.95!
- The cost of printing. I started out trying to print only the lapbook components that I thought we would use, but I’m a hands on kind of girl and decided I needed to print the entire unit (103 pages).
