Lots of fun June 13, 2018
Reviewer: Shannon A. from USA  
We really enjoyed the Parks Unit Study.  I used it with 4 kids grades K, 2, 3, & 5. Honestly,  I think the kids favorite part was reading Who Pooped in the Park! I likes that it includes vocabulary words, math, history, etc, all in one. After learning about area, the kids felt the need to figure out the area of the hotel room we were staying in. Most of the books that go with it we were able to find at the library. We only had to buy a couple.  
All around, I would, and have, recommend this Unit Study to friends.
