If you have a horse lover in your family, then you’ll want to know about the Handsome Horses Download N Go, released today.
Ben has loved horses since he was a little. One of his very favorite spaces on earth is the Kentucky Horse Park (worth the drive if you’re within a couple of hours of Lexington, KY). Living in the midst of horse country, we see horses most any day we’re out and about. But the sight of a horse still excites Ben as much today as it did when he was 2. I love that.
Last year, we completed most of Amanda Bennett’s 4-week Unit Study Adventure on horses, but Ben is still anxious to do the Download N Go anyway. Knowing Amanda, he’ll still learn new things. She’s so creative with her unit studies, I’m sure there will be a surprise angle that we never expected.
For those of you who may not be familiar, Download N Go units are one week in length, include a lapbook and are written for grades K-4. Unit Study Adventures are 4 weeks in length, include notebooking pages, and are written at 2 levels–elementary and Jr./Sr. high. These units are, for the most part, our only curriculum for unit studies and include social studies, geography, history, science, art, music, Bible, vocabulary–pretty much everything but math and language arts, like phonics and grammar.
Now, where to fit this new study into our around the world schedule? I’m thinking perhaps this summer when we focus on Kentucky state history 🙂
