Magnificent Moon - A Download N Go Review

This week, as time has permitted, we have turned our eyes up for a study of the moon! Thanks to Download N Go, we were given a free copy of one of their new unit studies, Magnificent Moon, to test out and it has scored high marks with the 1st grader.

With this study, one of the things we are really enjoyed has been learning a little bit about some of the astronauts that have been to the moon. What their hobbies were as a kid, what they studied in school, etc. It has been a great start for some discussions with N1 about how different subjects may lead into different careers in life, as a love of science did with these men.

As always, this study has some great hands-on lapbook elements for your elementary aged students as well as an amazing suggested library list for read-alouds and independent reading for your student.
Magnificent Moon was a lot of fun and we look forward to wrapping it up over the next few days! Thank you Download N Go for the chance of another fun unit study!
