Creation Camouflage

Last week we studied Download N Go's Creation Camouflage.  Download N Go unit studies are designed for grades K-4 but we have used them for children older and younger in our homeschool.  In this case, 2 of my children, Emma (7) and Ryan (11) completed Creation Camouflage, some of the other children also enjoyed watching the videos.

Download N Go unit studies are 5 day long units with all the work planned out for you.  Although extensive suggested library books are listed in the study, none are necessary as everything is internet linked. (We took out a few books from the list but I forgot to take pictures of them before we returned them to the library.) The videos and photographs in this unit are amazing and such fun to watch. If you haven't read any of my reviews before then it is important to note that all of the videos are embedded on a safe page that hides all of the nasty comments often found on youtube.

 I really didn't do any planning for this unit.  I looked over the unit the night before (or in the morning) and printed out the pages I wanted them to do and that was it!  This is one of the things I love most about Download N Go.  You really can do just that!

In Creation Camouflage you will find:
  • 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

For this unit we chose to do some of the worksheet pages and just a couple of the lap book mini-books.  Most of this study we did together orally.  It was so interesting and if you have kids that love animals you will not want to miss this one. If you have kids that don't care that much about animals this might be the one that piques their interest!

We didn't do any extra activities or anything really to take pictures of but I did want to share a few pictures.

Here is Emma on a nature walk.  Her camouflage wasn't that good.
We talked about that.
Finished lap folders.

Ryan dressed in camouflage (which he is most of the time)
with his finished folder.

This was a very cool unit.  We learned a lot about different animals and their habitats and different kinds of camouflage.  It was also a great unit for geography (another favorite feature of DNG units!)
