Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here’s what parents are saying about Tremendous Trees:
“Okay, I’ve got to say this is probably my favorite Download N Go™ yet! The graphics in this one are just so lovely and eye-catching that I wanted to print out everything… Our favorite project was the accordion book. My oldest carried it with her on our trip so she could check out the different types of trees around Canada… It brought practical application into our homeschooling and made our “tourist” visits more alive! Not to mention, there were so many other interesting activities in it, and some very cool videos that showed us some amazing trees that we hadn’t really realized before just how ‘tremendous’ they really were!“

“Tremendous Trees earns a ‘Bravo’! The videos are great, and the websites are something my kids will definitely enjoy! Amanda has really done well putting this unit together. I can’t wait to share this with my boys . . . This unit is so fascinating! Each day covered something different about trees. Each day you also learned about a different tree. The activities that were at the end each day and also at the end of the unit look especially fun! I plan on taking my boys on walks in the parks near our house to explore the trees in the area. . . . The activities for the lapbook are beautiful. Your child will definitely enjoy learning about Tremendous Trees.”

“I have always been fascinated with trees, and so are my children. This … has many fun things to do having to do with trees. You will learn all about some very special trees in Washington, D.C., and where they came from. We have been lucky enough to visit and see them. The lapbook is adorable. The graphics are clear, and the activities are simple and concise. I was able to use it with my older child with more intensity and my younger ones with less writing and intensity. If you enjoy trees, this is a must-have. Everything is ready to go for those busy moms. It is divided into units for each activity that are very clear. Thanks again, Download and Go™.”
