DNG Review: Creation Camouflage

Creation Camouflage is a fun and fascinating way to learn how God created various animals to be able to use camouflage to defend themselves. What kinds of animals could you find hiding in your backyard?

Creation Camouflage, like all the other Download N Go units, is full of fascinating information, colorful pictures, and numerous weblinks to video clips and other information. The content of each unit is selected specifically for grades K-4, but they certainly are adaptable for younger or older students as well. There are worksheets to fill in, as well as elements to cut out and create into a lapbook. Each unit also offers a fairly comprehensive list of books on the topic; you can choose to use them, or not.

Each unit is set up for a 5 day learning experience, with lists of daily objectives. That list of objectives for Creation Camouflage is:

Day 1: Hiding in Plain Sight
Day 2: Getting to Know the Rain Forest
Day 3: What Is in the Desert?
Day 4: Hiding in the Ocean
Day 5: Cool Things About the Tundra

We enjoyed learning about the different biomes, and how animals use camouflage in each one. I think my 8 year old's favorite is the rain forest, since he loves frogs! With this unit, we pretty much just read through the unit, answering questions orally, and watching the videos. I didn't print off much (since I am out of ink, again!). But the little guy found the videos very captivating, and even got a giggle out of a couple of them.

Each unit sells for $7.95 typically. Currently, Creation Camouflage is on sale, through December 18 for $5.95. You can read more about it here, so hurry and purchase your own copy of this great adventure!
