Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying about Constitution Celebration:
“My 10-year-old son and I are probably the most devout history lovers in this house, so we were so excited to review the Constitution Celebration Download N Go™ . . .The lapbook pieces are very well done and the graphics are very appealing. You can print them out in vibrant color, or print in black and white and let the children color the graphics. I was so excited to see a link to information about how to save on ink when printing . . . Another great thing about the Download N Go™ unit studies is that Scripture is included in each daily lesson.It is an important reminder to us that God's hand has been evident throughout history, even the history of our nation's difficult struggle to become the United States of America.If you love unit studies, then I would have to recommend Constitution Celebration Download N Go™. The educational videos and links are a blast, and making a lapbook is a lot of fun. Maybe it will inspire your family to memorize the Preamble like it has ours.”

“. . . I have wanted to do something like this for our schooling but didn't know exactly where to begin. This product gave us a great start!The information in this unit study was well searched and very easy to follow. We weren't able to get any extra books from the library this time, however, I don't think we needed them as we had so much information already included, plus I had some other books at home that went along perfectly. The links to the videos were very good and kept my children's attention. (I have an 8-year-old and our 3-year-old watches with us) There was even one particular video that had some of our favorite TV characters.We also went to Washington D.C. while we did this study, and we are incorporating some pictures from the trip in the lapbook . . .I wouldn't have thought that you could learn so much about one topic in a week, but with the Download N Go™ products you really do. ”

“The new Download N Go™ Constitution Celebration was a wonderful unit to review and also build into our curriculum.Like the other DNG studies, it is jam-packed with wonderful links, hands-on learning, and enough recommended books to keep you busy for three weeks with this five-day study . . . We found that the variety of video links in this study was really mindful of the different levels of learning maturity that would be incorporated in a study for kids in this age range. There are many links to coloring pages that can be used to reinforce a concept or keep younger ones active while listening to some wonderful, read-aloud suggestions from the book list. Links are also offered for more advanced learners as well as lots of hands-on processing through the lapbooking activities.Our greatest joy with this study was the biographies of key figures associated with the Constitution. In bringing these figures alive, the Constitution becomes personal to young minds. They can begin to relate on a greater scale to the importance of the Constitution and the sacrifices these men and their families made in standing for America's freedom. ”
