You are about to embark on your mission to "Magnificent Moon"
another "magnificent" Download N Go Unit Study by Amanda Bennett.
Download N Go unit studies are designed to be 5 day learning adventures. Everything you need is ready, just download n go! Each unit is an affordable $7.95, available in minutes. Check out the full list here. Plus, you can get a great deal right now, the Cabin Fever Fun Pack, which includes Magnificent Moon, Winter Wonders, Expedition Canada, and Popcorn is currently on sale, and will be through 1/31/11 for $20 (regularly $28).
While we were happily munching our Oreos into the phases of the moon...we were entralled, watching amazing videos of our nation's journey to the moon. The children and I were mezmerized as we re-lived the awe and wonder of our first glimpses of Earth from God's perspective. Since I was only months old, the first lunar landing was as spectacular for me as it was for them.
We learned about the astronauts, whose feet have touched moon soil (do you know how many men have walked on the moon?). We studied the solar system. Ate cookies! And, enjoyed art appreciation (didn't expect that one, did you?). Amanda Bennett has made use of all the wonderful resources available to you online...but, without the time consuming effort of locating them for yourself.
Each unit is completely packed with information. You could use it over the course of a month, with plenty of activities! In addition, Book suggestions, Activity pages and further Family Fun ideas are also included. But, I've saved the best for last - all the components needed to produce a full color lapbook are also included...just print and assemble!
I am completely hooked on this type of learning. My whole crew (ages 13 to 1) come running as soon as they hear the first video clip playing. An hour or so later, we look for a snack and head back for more. How often does "school" look like this in your house? Well, it could...
And, I just found out another exiciting reason for you to try "Magnificent Moon" - They will be doing a giveaway contest. The contest will run from 1/24-28/11, with the drawing at 9pm on 1/28. We will be giving away 2 standard Moon Maps from National Geographic, valued at $16.99 each.
