Expedition Australia E-Book Review

Expedition Australia E-Book, by Amanda Bennett and The Old Schoolhouse, is a delightful little science toolkit!  I have always wanted to go to Australia, so it was fun and exciting to take a “journey” there, taking my younger four children, ages 3-10, along with me as we learned about geography, Australian animals, boomerangs, and Captain Cook, who also is a big “hero” here in Alaska!  We live right off of Cook Inlet, named for him, so it really brought it all back home for the kids.


As a mom with many children, I really appreciated all of the work that went into finding all of the links for videos and activities on the internet.  All I had to do was click on the link, and institute the activity.


There are activities, book suggestions, on-line videos, discussion questions, recipes and crafts for each day. Honestly though, with all of the content included in this e-book, you have several weeks worth of science and geography you could do!  We spent several hours on it the first day alone! Even my older boys got side-tracked from their work and enjoyed watching the videos.


Comments from my 7yo and 9yo included: “We get to learn about Australia?!” and “This is so fun, thanks Mom!”  My 3 & 5yo love to learn the verses and quotes for each day, which also make great posters for our school room! The kids beg me to do science each day.  I just have to get myself organized so we can jump right into it in the morning!  Thanks for making science and geography easy and fun for all, and at $7.95, it is one of the best deals out there!  I can’t praise the Download N Go series enough and recommend them to my friends!

  1. Hi Grace,

    I'm Jenny on the akfreeschoolers group. I don't know how I've missed you're blog all this time, but I'm glad to have finally found it.I am adding you to my friends list so I can come back for your reviews. This one looks great. We have a friend in Australia, so I'm sure my boys would enjoy it. I recently started a blog here on HomeschoolBlogger about our life in the Alaskan bush. I hope you'll stop by when you have a chance. :-)

    God bless,
