History is skipping over a few of our heroes, and they are slowly fading away. That doesn't have to happen when you are in charge of your homeschool!
Davy Crockett is one of those patriot heroes that you'll want your children to know about and remember. This brave frontiersman, family man, congressman, and man of integrity loved to stand up for what he believed was right, even when that was not an easy thing to do.
"Be always sure you are right—then go ahead." —Davy Crockett
"Why do I include "real" people in my unit studies? Whether they are scientists, politicians, inventors, historians, explorers, artists, or historical figures, they help your children see the topic in terms that they can relate to; “real people who actually lived," as our kids would say. Always begin with the childhood of the people who are connected to a unit study when you can, it gives your children something that they can picture so well." —Amanda B.
Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying about Davy Crockett:
“Wow, what inspiration and a wonderful unit study! It is for grades K-4th, but you could always add to it to make it for older grades. It makes learning fun, colorful, and hands-on . . . I loved it so much that I . . . bought a full semester’s worth and can hardly wait to get started on them. I will be using them even with my very handicapped 7-year-old. . . this is just what our kids need to realize that school doesn't have to be all work and boring!”
—Orilla Crider, TOS Review Panel
“I appreciated the fact that I was able to use it with a broad age range. My 4-, 6-, and 8-year-olds curled up beside me to listen to the stories we were reading about Davy Crockett and the little Internet videos we watched. The activity pages were a wide enough range from a simple coloring page of the Alamo that is suitable for the 4-year-old to some more complex lapbook activities that the 8-year-old can complete. All the children enjoyed our little brief study, and I appreciated the ease with which I could use this product! I would say that this product is well worth the . . . price!”

“If your child likes to ‘play’ on the computer, then this is totally for him! . . . How wonderful to have resources like this literally at our fingertips and already searched and approved! . . . I love that the Download N Go™ Series weaves all the disciplines into one great package . . . I believe . . . Amanda Bennett did a beautiful job helping me remember Davy Crockett the soldier, the statesman, and hero at the Alamo—and passing on this piece of history and Americana to my son. All at home!”
