Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying
about Football Frenzy:
“Football Frenzy is an excellent way to teach your children about one of America’s greatest pastimes. You’ll learn the history of football, the rules of the game, the science behind the sport and so much more. Lapbooking ideas are incorporated into this unit study and present a great way for your children to experience hands-on learning. They will also appreciate having a record of what they’ve learned for future reference. There is a great book list that is helpful in finding supplementary material that can be used to enhance the material presented in Football Frenzy. I found the book list to be very helpful when I was trying to find excellent outside resources, and I especially liked the fact that the work was already done for me, which saved me a lot of valuable time. My children and I loved the video links that were presented in Football Frenzy, and I felt that they helped my children and I gain a greater understanding of the sport. Football Frenzy is a great tool that helped my children nd I understand football in a new way. Now we will have a better understanding of what’s going on the next time we watch a football game. Like all Download N Go™ units, Football Frenzy is ready to use and requires very little planning. That combined with its great value made this unit study a winner in my book and a great addition to our curriculum.” Lori in MI
“Whether you are a football superfan or have trouble distinguishing a tight end from a left tackle, you WILL score a touchdown with your kids using Amanda Bennett’s Football Frenzy Download-N-Go™. Similar to an NFL game, this week-long unit study is ACTION packed! Embedded video clips, lapbooking components, just-for-fun activities, craft ideas, snack suggestions, and recommended reading lists afford K–4 students the opportunity to learn the origins and basics of the game. Attention is given to positions, equipment, score keeping, and even the process of making a football. The science of the game is not neglected, and featured stadiums, teams, tournaments, trophies, championship rings, and Hall of Fame players will assure some cheers. The beauty of it all . . . the planning, research, and prep-work are complete! Football Frenzy is a winning playbook in your hands. Simply rally the team, Download-N-Go™, and ready, set, hike!” Angela in KY
“Football Frenzy is jam-packed with wonderful learning opportunities, fro m the beginnings of football and its history, to the rules of the game, how the game is scored, and learning about the teams in the NFL. With this unit you will learn about some very famous football players, how some players help others in need, about the equipment used in football, and about the football itself. . . . How about some science? . . . Most of us do not relate science with football at all, but you will learn the role physics plays in this game! I have to say that I do know a bit about football, and while I am not an avid fan, I do enjoy the sport. But this unit taught me many things I did not know about football. Neither of my boys currently plays sports, but both of them would love this study and enjoy the learning experience it provides!”
