DNG Review: Expedition Israel

Easter is coming. What a great time to "take a trip to Israel"! Visit some of the Bible heroes of Israel, as well as learn some of the modern-day features. Expedition Israel is the perfect way to do just that.

Download N Go units are fascinating five-day studies designed especially for your K-4th grade students. They are full of interesting information, awesome video clips, educative weblinks, as well as hands-on activities, such as work pages and lapbook components. Each Download N Go unit is available for only $7.95.

Expedition Israel taught us a geographic feature of the day, animal of the day, food of the day, a daily hero of Israel, Biblical events, and a Hebrew word of the day.

The daily objectives for Expedition Israel are:

Day 1: Where on Earth Is Israel?
Day 2: Some of the Special Places in Israel
Day 3: A Bit of History
Day 4: Cool Things to Know About Israel
Day 5: Fun and Games in Israel

This time I allowed Teen Girl to take charge of working on this unit with Little Bit. They read through the lesson, watched the videos, visited a new city in Israel each day, filled in worksheets and made lapbook pages together, while I supervised "from a distance." I felt this fit in well for Teen Girl, since she is currently learning about Queen Esther, Persia, and Jewish history.

I also picked up a go-along book from the library, Cooking the Israeli Way, to glean some ideas for preparing our Sabbath meal this week.

Be sure to add this to your Easter preparations, so you can "walk where Jesus walked" with your children. I am sure you will all enjoy it!

I want to close this review by including this youtube of one of my favorite singers, singing The Holy City, as the Sabbath begins (here in my time zone, anyway).

As part of the the Download N Go review team, I have been provided with a copy of this unit to use, review, and post about on my blog.
