      Yes, as long as it’s just a backup for your own personal use. But not to share with friends 🙂

    I am interested in purchasing this, but would like to get a copy already printed and ready to use. Do you have anything like that?

      Hi Tammi,
      I currently only offer my products in CD or Download form only. So you would then print what is needed for your family.

    I bought this several years ago and printed it out, but for the life of me can’t find the Student Book material. Is there a way to just purchase that part?

    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

      I recommend it for elementary ages, usually first – sixth or so is great.

    If I purchase the road will it come with a teathers mannual? And will I receive the cover sheets for the binders ?

      Yes, when you download the files you’ll see the teacher’s manual, student workbooks, binder covers, and animals unit. If you purchased the CD those files will all be on the CD.

    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!

    • Damaris Watt March 9, 2017 at 10:09 am

      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?

      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.

    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

      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.

    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?

    Reply
    • erica April 10, 2017 at 2:15 pm

      Each lesson is about 30-45 minutes, some might take longer if your child takes longer coloring worksheets, or if there is a project or recipe involved.
