Ben Franklin

There is so much to learn about Ben Franklin, he was truly a remarkable man. He surely deserves to be on our one hundred dollar bill.

Elijah just finished the Download N Go Ben Franklin unit created by Amanda Bennett. We found this unti to be FULL of information. So much information we could have spent 2 weeks or more on this unit.

We learned a ton of interesting facts about B. Franklin. So much that we ended up with a lapbook full of booklets and folds. We used two large file folders to make this lapbook.

You can see I added the yellow and orange card stock pages to make extensions just so we could get everything in the lapbook. DSCF6901DSCF6903 DSCF6902
If you are not into lapbooks the booklets could be used in notebooks.
The Download N Go units do include a nice list of library books, but if you are not able to get to a library don’t let that stop you from trying a unit. I have not gotten any library books for any of the DNG units we have done and that has NOT stopped us from learning and enjoying the units. The units are full of SAFE links with tons of info you can read about Franklin on the internet.

I really appreciate the vocabulary words found in each Download N Go unit. Each unit also includes spelling words.

To finish up our unit Elijah built different electronic experiments with his Snap Circuits set.
