Expedition Israel DNG Review

One of the reasons I became a homeschool mommy is to ensure that my children don't grow up viewing the people and places of the Bible in isolation.  Rather than relegated to Sunday School, Children's Church, and family devotions, I want them to see that the Word of God is ALIVE!  In every subject and every study, may God be glorified.  In the Expedition Israel DNG, Amanda Bennett delivers yet another beautiful opportunity for my children to experience God while studying geography, culture, history, science, etc.

Designed as a week long unit study for students K-4, Expedition Israel is filled to the brim and overflowing with a bounty of information.  This gem of educational excellence welcomes little ones to the Holy Land in an innovative, exciting manner.  I know my three wild ones were easily tamed to dig deeper in order to study the places where Bible personalities of old lived and walked.  This study truly delivered a sense of reality to what is often viewed as a 2-dimensional Sunday School take-home paper.  The embedded websites and videos ushered us into the beautiful land and introduced us to the unique wildlife.  The suggested reading had us flipping pages in our Bibles.  The activities bonded us as a family, and overall, we had such an enjoyable time studying Israel's terrain, culture, people, and rich history.

An overview of the week and sample activity pages are shown below.

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

I encourage you to purchase this study.  As we approach Easter, this would make for a timely inclusion to your celebration and time of rememberance.  For only $7.95, it is a wise investment that will reap benefits as you watch your children gain knowledge and greater understanding of the land that was central to so many Biblical events.  I highly recommend the Expedition Israel DNG for your homeschooling family.  Don't just take my word for it - visit the blog hop to hear what other reviewers are saying!
