“I had no idea it was possible to know so much about kites! . . . Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about kites is in this one, plus a little more . . . you could conceivably use this study to cover aspects of every subject for younger grades: science (weather, flight), social studies (kite variety according to culture), math (measurement and physics), reading (literature, Scripture, and poetry), writing, and copy work . . . I know the kids are going to go absolutely gonzo for this one, as they just the other day brought up kites and asked when we could make some to take to the park with us!”

“I have to admit this unit study, Kite Capers, from the Download N Go™ Series by Amanda Bennett could not be more user-friendly for the teacher . . . I am the type of homeschooler who does not like to have a lot of preparation for unit studies, and Amanda Bennett has done all the research and hard work for you and me. The lapbook is all ready for you to print and cut out. It is in full color and ready for your child to add his or her thoughts and creations . . . this whole project is only one week long, so you can have your child connecting the new-found discoveries of kite flying to the world around him as he flies his newly created kite he has made all on his own.”

“My son was thrilled when I showed him the unit study. He said “Oooo, I like kites! Count me in to go on an adventure to learn all about kites” . . . He was excited that we would be learning about Benjamin Franklin and his kite experiment, and also about wind and why it’s needed to fly kites. We’ll also learn about different types of clouds. He’s fascinated with the weather, because he wants to be a meteorologist when he grows up. There are also other famous people to be learned about in this unit as well . . . The fun part for us is putting together the lapbook at the end of the study. My son loves looking back over and over again what he has learned when it’s made into a lapbook. I have used several of Amanda Bennett’s unit studies in the past, but I’m really loving her Download N Go™ Series.”
