The last couple of weeks, we have been going on the wild side!  We have loved DNG’s for the past year since we discovered them, but Terrific Tigers has been a blast, especially for my 4 & 5yo’s!!  The best part about these unit studies is all of the videos that are included, from watching tigers eat to a tiger cub playing with a dog toy, my 5yo’s personal favorite.  My children love to gather around the screen and watch the world come to them.  {Scroll to the end to enter to win your own copy!} 

Joey (1yo) really gets into the videos! He learned to say, “Tiger!”

 

My kids really enjoy doing the activities, including word finds and cut-outs for the older children and coloring pages for the little ones.

I personally love how the DNG’s integrate geography into whatever you are studying.  With tigers all over Asia, the kids are really learning to find the countries on the included map.  They also had a great time coloring stripes on the cover of their lapbooks!  Another of my favorite features is the great pictures with little quotes separating each day, like the one in the center of the picture below.  The kids like to print out some and decorate the cover of their folders.  

I also love the fact that I don’t have to do a lot of preparation for teaching.  With merely printing out the notebooking pages and setting up my computer so all can see the great videos and websites, we can be ready to go.  As a mother of 7 children, the DNG’s enable me to actually get to all of the fun crafts and activites that make learning exciting!

Due to sickness, we haven’t been able to finish the unit study yet, but are looking forward to finishing it this coming week!  Here is a sneak peak at a few of the 94 pages that are included in this unit study! You can get a sample of Terrific Tigers from The Old Schoolhouse webstore too!  

  

We are fortunate enough to have tigers at our little Alaskan zoo, and I am hoping that next week when we go into town, it will be a nice enough day to include a visit to our own Siberian, or Amur, tigers!

Terrific Tigers delves into a new tiger each day.  How neat to learn about the differences between the same kind of animal!  I never knew there was so much variety in tigers.  The kids just love to “educate” their dad on the differences.  My oldest son, a 15yo, said, “Can I do DNG’s too?!”  He sees how much fun we have, and I told him that I wished I had had DNG’s back when he was little.  I have recommended Download N’ Go’s to many friends, including my sister-in-law, and will certainly be recommending Terrific Tigers!
