Kite Capers!

I have to admit I was very reluctant to sign up to review Kite Capers for Download N Go.  We still had snow on the ground and I wasn't really sure that I wanted to do this one but I am so glad we did!  It was a lot of fun and we learned so much about a variety of topics including Ben Franklin, weather, geography and of course kite flying (and so much more)!

Each Download N Go unit is a complete unit study designed for grades K-4.  There are 5 days of lessons.  In Kite Capers you will find:

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

We took advantage of one of the warmer days this week and went to a local field and playground to fly kites.  We had watched a video from the study that day with instructions on how to fly a single line kite (without running) and it was so helpful!  It made our kite flying experience very enjoyable.  We enjoyed watching many of the kite videos included in this study.  (Videos are internet linked and embedded on a safe page to protect your children.)

I recommend Kite Capers for your family.  I am looking forward to some great kite flying this summer at the beach!  Don't forget to visit the Download N Go blog for $5 Friday on March 18 where you will find some great deals.  Don't miss it!
