  1. Good morning,
    I was wondering what age this is appropriate for… I am starting to homeschool my 4 year old in preschool this year and I am gearing up for kindergarten next year. Also, I just wanted to say how grateful I am for your website and all the information you are providing!
    Thanks,
    Heather

  2. Hi! I am considering using this curriculum in the fall at a co-op, and wondered if you think this would be a good idea and if you have thoughts on how to make it work that way? Do you have a co-op schedule/lesson plan for it? Thanks!

    1. Also, I own the individual download. I understand that if I choose to do it at the co-op I need to purchase the classroom one. My question is, do they have the same content? If I look through mine can I get an idea of what it will have in the classroom one?

    2. Hi Damaris,
      I do not have a co-op schedule for it as each co-op is different, meets for different amounts of time, and different amounts of days in a given month. So that would be difficult to draw up. You’ll need to adjust it to fit your co-op’s needs. As far as using it with your co-op, yes you’ll need to upgrade to the classroom license, and yes the content is exactly the same. The classroom license just allows you to print multiple copies of things for your students as needed.

  3. Hello, I am wondering will the download have the pictures of the animals? Also Can I use this for k and 2nd grade. Is there many crafts and cooking assigments in each lesson or each state? My son loves crafts

    1. Hi Jami,
      The animals come with the unit, if you would like to do the entire curriculum you will need to purchase it from my store. And yes, there are a lot of crafts, recipes and activities that go along with each state study.

  4. How long do you think each lesson would typically last? Of course each student/family is different – just wanting a ballpark. 30 minutes or more like an hour for each lesson?
