The moon is full of opportunities to dream, explore, and learn! From the ocean's tides to moon rocks, astronauts to gravity, the moon captures the attention of children and inspires them to dream like nothing else. There's much to learn, do, and discover on this amazing adventure!
"I had the privilege of meeting Gene Cernan several years ago and hearing him speak about his moon mission and what it felt like to walk on the moon. He shared his excitement about what it looked like and why it is important to keep learning and journeying into space. I highly recommend that if you get a chance to hear an astronaut speak, go and listen and learn. Introduce yourself!" —Amanda B.
Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying about Magnificent Moon:
"My family's favorites are always the video links and the lapbooks. This Download N Go sure delivers in both areas! The video footage of space exploration and our famous astronauts is awe inspiring. There is no comparison between glancing at a photo in a textbook and watching Gene Cernan sing on the moon. One is ordinary and the other is a visceral experience that you won't likely forget anytime soon.
The lapbook is out of this world (sorry, I couldn't help myself!) Sure to be a big hit is the astronaut cut-out that allows you to paste a photo of yourself on it! So cute! You can't go wrong with Magnificent Moon. You will cover Creation, astronomy, space travel, gravity, great thinkers, fabulous vocabulary words and you get to eat Oreos! Did you ever think eating Oreos would help you learn about the moon? Well, Amanda Bennett has done it again with Magnificent Moon! Off to make a space capsule!"

“Magnificent Moon continues to bring all of the great things I have come to expect with the Download N Go series. This 5 day study on the moon is so full of information, videos and project ideas, you could easily extend it to up to a month of learning!
Magnificent Moon is filled with real-life science, history and geography. You will also find spelling, vocabulary and writing, as well as math and Bible verses.These unit studies by DNG are a hit with our family. Out of everything we use to learn, they retain these lessons the best. I learn right along with them, even with titles I think I know something about!"
—Samantha Kelley, Prestonsburg, KY
"It still amazes me in an era computers took up whole rooms and buildings that man made it to the moon! Amanda takes us on a wild ride from Galileo to Apollo and beyond in this awe inspiring study! Enjoy a daily moon watch and learn about a different man on the moon each day too! So many fun family ideas in this study...the lapbooking elements are the best and most exciting I've seen yet...those are this Mom's favorite part!"
