Can science really be this fun? Let kids explore and learn about the extraordinary things they love . . . like robots!

There's an action-packed android adventure awaiting your family . . .

Day 1: What Is a Robot?
Day 2: The History of Robots
Day 3: People and Places of Robots
Day 4: Science Secrets of Robots
Day 5: Goodies and Gadgets of Robots

Did you know that robots build cars, defuse bombs, load dishwashers, cook omelets, vacuum, and even play in an orchestra? When was the term robot first used? Did Leonardo da Vinci really design the first humanoid robot? How are robots built? What will they be like years from now?

Most scientists and engineers believe that we have just begun to scratch the surface of all that we can do with robots and that the best is yet to come. The robot's fascinating history is an unforgettable study in itself, but there are so many neat science topics to investigate and exciting things to do!

However you write it . . . robots rock!

Take a peek inside this unit.
Here’s what homeschooling parents are saying about Rocking Robots:

“If you have science-loving kids like I do, they are going to love this one! . . . We are so excited to use Rocking Robots! Even dad wants to be in on the action . . . Every day is filled with fascinating videos as you learn all about what robots are and how they are used, as well as Leonardo da Vinci, planets, and the human body. There are experiments, recipes, and even fun costumes to make. We have done several of the Download N Go™ units, and I am always amazed at how much is included in each unit but not in an overwhelming way, and this one is no exception. The information is presented in an inviting way, and the layout is bright and attractive. The lapbook is a great keepsake and can be used for later review. My kids are always so proud of their work and take turns keeping it in their rooms. My boys, who can never get enough science, were completely intrigued! I love seeing them so excited about learning. I used to spend hours trying to put together studies to keep my kids passions alive, but now it has been done for me. These units have truly changed our homeschool!”

—Lisa McClain, South Weber, UT

“This was just what I needed for my son! He loves everything about robots, and this gave him the opportunity to put it down on paper and do it for school! He loved working on the lapbook and even learned a few things that he did not know before about robots. It came perfect timing as well because he had been saying "I hate school" for the previous week, and this seemed to have cured him! We did a bit of it on our after-school time as well because he liked it so much! I think our spelling book will be covered with the lapbook spelling pages if he has anything to do with it! We also liked the videos for this unit study. I think we watched the violin playing robot at least 10 times!”

— Amy Cruson, Sask, Canada

“This study is full of delightful robot lapbooking pages that are a joy to look at. We are recent converts to lapbooking, and I have Amanda Bennett and the Download N Go™ Series to thank for that! Every study has an introduction to lapbooking at the beginning of the study. She really makes it easy for those of us who have never made a lapbook! . . .  You will watch engaging videos and listen to music. You will learn history and science. You will also cover math, spelling and vocabulary. There are Bible verses and my weakest area of school—art. (Thank you for giving me art!!) You will learn about fun robots that reflect the image of robots I get in my head when I think of a robot: you know, Rosie from the Jetsons. But I think more importantly, you will learn about serious robots. I didn't even think about that side of robots when I decided to do this review! These robots are needed for times when a job needing to be done is too dangerous for a human to do . . . Robots are used far more than I thought they were. They are very useful for our lives today!”

— Samantha Kelley, Prestonsburg, KY
