This series is a full color, one-week in length comprehensive teaching tool that requires absolutely no preparation. There are a few inexpensive supplies needed for completion of this program, such as a file folder, glue stick, scissors (or safety scissors, depending on child’s age), brass brads, and either crayons or markers.
In Davy Crockett children will learn about Davy Crockett, the people and geography of the state of Tennessee, the pioneer way of life, the biography of this great American hero, and more about the history of our country. You will also learn about tall tales associated with this great real life legend.
This Series is designed to teach unit studies to all ages of children. The ones I used it on were age eight and age five. I didn’t have any problem making the subject matter adaptable for the five year old, while allowing my eight year old to use the pages I printed. I did make additional photocopies of some of the pages so both girls could use them. An answer key is included, as well as web sites you can visit for more information.
If you are looking for an easy, colorful, relatively cheap answer for unit studies about Davy Crockett then Download & Go series Davy Crockett is something to consider. Available at: www.downloadngo.com/DavyCrockett.

· Lapbooking activities.
As the student works through the week, he/she is creating a lapbook-a finished capsule of learning.

Each study is one week in length, having five daily lessons with lapbook components for each day. Simple to use, step by step, but complete in content!

· Resource list for optional further study.
These studies each have a great list of books that you can use to enrich your learning, but they are not required. This study is complete on its own. If desired, find books easily at your local library using the title and ISBN information for suggested optional resources.
· Interactivity built in with hyperlinks embedded right in the study.
All the research and preparation have been done! Enjoy a variety of multimedia selections, such as video clips and animations, plus educational and craft sites. You'd spend all week searching if you had to find all these great links yourself!
