A trip to the zoo enchants children time and time again. Why? It’s a fascinating, close-up, real-life encounter with amazing creatures they seldom get to see!

Your child will embark on an irresistible journey, researching favorite zoo animals,climbing the mountains, trudging through the deserts, speaking a foreign language, and taking a close look at some favorite Bible characters and special visitors.
Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying
about Expedition Africa:
“We have used a couple of these units over the last few months, and I have to tell you that we have loved every one of them. One of the highlights of each day is the videos of the people and places of Africa. Each time we view one, my boys chime in with “I want to visit there!” or “Can we find out more about that place?” Music to Mom’s ears! . . . I would highly recommend this or any of the DNG units. They are interesting and easy to use as well as reasonably priced! That’s a win-win in my book! . . . Something both moms and kids love . . . !”

“. . . I am beyond excited about what is in this Download N Go™ unit study. . . . It is fascinating to learn about far-away places and to cover a multitude of other subjects while doing it. I love how everything is all pulled together in an easily implemented unit that can be done in one week or expanded to last much longer (which is what we did with Expedition Mexico, taking three weeks). . . . I am particularly excited about the missionaries included in this study. We know a couple of missionaries to Africa, so we will certainly be adding something about them and the countries they serve in. . . . The colorful worksheets included with each Download N Go™ unit and the lapbooking mini books make for a wonderful end-of-unit review to share with family and friends and to review over and over again so your children will actually remember what they learned. We have recently started using pocket folders to keep the worksheets together, and we glue the lapbook components to the inside of the folder. I am thankful to Amanda Bennett . . . for writing and publishing these unit studies that are affordable and so much fun to do.” Karen in RI
“These past few days we have been on safari with Download N Go’s Expedition Africa!Grandma Jean was visiting with us while we were on safari. I think she had as much fun ‘doing school’ as the boys did. We watched some beautiful videos each day before we had story time on the same topics we had just covered . . . I’ve really enjoyed each of the Download N Go™ units we’ve used so far. While Expedition Africa didn’t hold the boys’ attention as well as some of the others, when we stuck mostly with animals, they ate it up! At 3.5 and 5.5, the littles are really on the lower end of the age range these studies are intended for. I definitely plan to do this study again in a few years. I love that we can do that with these units, and I’m confident we will love it even more then.”
