Download N Go Astonishing Animals

Animals are a favorite topic in our house. My kids love creating artworks, lapbooks or projects about different animals. Download N Go’s Astonishing Animals was perfect for my kids whose age ranged from pre-K to 1st grade. We have not been able to study about lemurs, wolverines, komodo dragons, loggerhead sea turtles nor adélie penguins yet. As a mom who didn’t know much about these unfamiliar animals, I was glad to see a list of resource books on the first part. I was also grateful that there are several video links so my kids would learn about the unfamiliar animals.

Since my son loves turtle, he enjoyed learning about the loggerhead sea turtle the most. He found it enjoyable to know more details about this lovable sea creature. The fun project allowed him to use his imagination while appreciating the animal. He loved it when we made a model of a sea turtle using modelling clay. As the lesson suggested, we also tried creating several baby turtles heading for the ocean waves.

Aside from the lapbooks, the kids had the most fun when we did the scavenger hunt family activity. They loved putting the clues they have learned together and looking for more clues around the house. As a mom, whenever I see the kid learning, I am truly very happy. It is a bonus when I see them having fun learning. It makes the retention of the lesson more effective too!

Terrific Tigers Download N Go Review

My son loves making lapbooks. So when he saw the new Terrific Tigers Download N Go Series, he was so excited and wanted to start at once! Tigers are one of his favorite animals. As we gathered our materials, we were excited to know more about the different kind of tigers and where tigers live. We started out with the Venn diagram of cats and tigers. My son had fun knowing the similarities and differences between the two animals. He was delighted to work with tiger puzzles and coloring pages as well. But his favorite part in the entire lapbook is the Treats for Tigers slider. He can move the slider up and down and discuss with me which animal the tiger eats. There is also a link about tiger sounds and my son had a blast listening to the actual tiger sounds. And of course, he loved adding stripes to the tiger in the Stripes Matchbook section!

I believe that it is noteworthy that the lapbook mentioned that the tigers are endangered species. This actually exposes the kids to the reality of and the responsibility of mankind to the habitat of the tigers. Another section that I like is the vocabulary section. Words relating to tigers which are often used in the lapbook are listed and the kids have to write down the meaning. For my son who is learning how to write, this is a neat way to practice his handwriting and increase his vocabulary too!

So if your kids love animals, this Terrific Tigers Download N Go is a must for them! It has plenty of multi-colored pages, links and list of resources which can help you in your further study about tigers. . I really love it that my son expresses himself creatively through the lapbook.
