    We are loving this curriculum! My kids were interested in learning about Australia, so we started with this unit and one other unit in year 4 to try out LoL before beginning with Year 1 in late summer/early fall. So far we are really enjoying this unit, and love the changes it has helped us make to our homeschool day. Very excited to dig into Year 1 as I begin planning this summer!
