Download N Go~Twisting Tornados!

Twisting Tornados is one of the newest Download N Go unit study series available for your child. There are quite a few titles, and you won’t want to miss a single one!

Spring has sprung around our house, and we had our first thunderstorm of the season this evening! Flashes of light, wind, rain and the BIG boom are all part of the season of growth that comes this time of year. But just a few years ago, we were in the Fall of the year when like Spring temperatures were rapidly changing to find ourselves in an F5 tornado’s path! Yikes! It was harrowing as the wind howled and the house shook. IT WENT THROUGH OUR BACKYARD~No kidding! And while devastation was all around us, we were safe and sound! Twisting Tornados will prepare you and your child if this event should come and give him a great understanding of how tornados are formed and behave. Never head of Download N Go?

Amanda Bennett along with The Old Schoolhouse are creating Download N Go weekly lapbooking unit studies for ages K-4th grades. From the study, the explanation:
“Each study is one week in length, having five daily lessons with lapbook components for each day. The name, Download N Go™, comes from the concept that these studies are ready to use as soon as you have downloaded them. No preparation or waiting time or other expensive resources are required. A few inexpensive items are needed for the lapbook—a simple file folder, a glue stick, safety scissors, brass brads, and crayons or markers. That’s it—simple, effective, and what a way to learn!” This is an easy way to learn the crucial information~all the FUN STUFF related to tornados~and certainly I hope you never get to first hand experience one, but their power is something incredible!

Children have such natural curiosity, and while a REAL tornado may evoke fear, if we teach all the information prior to such an event or as a point of knowledge as the seasons change from Winter to Spring what greater peace can come as well as being prepared for safety.

I don’t want to give too much away about Twisting Tornados, but you can rest assured that there are five really full days of learning centered around this topic that will include loads of learning for your child. With each day there are objectives, a suggested reading list and the lapbook with much information that is available on the web. Your printer will do the work of creating the “pages” of the lapbook and your child will increase his fine motor skills as he creates his lapbook. This is a fun and easy way to learn information that will prepare for a possible real life event! There are faith building objectives as well, giving the Lord our trust for our well being!

Download N Go offers an affordable option of learning without any prep other than the afore mentioned supplies, library books and websites. You will find this easy to teach and rich for your child!

If you are unfamiliar with lapbooking, Download N Go offers detailed instructions on constructing these on the simple, but you can make the project your own as well~it’s versatile!

Let’s capitalize on our children’s natural curiosity and teach about a naturally occurring event straight from mother nature!
