Nature study not only provides our children with their primary years of science study but it lays for a lifetime of wonder, curiosity and observation.
There are so many resources available the we would like to highlight a few that we feel maybe of value to you.
- In order to keep track of your observations Family Feast has a beautiful book of firsts that your children (and you) can use to track your regular observations over a period of 4 years.
- John Muir Law has so many amazing resources that we have used again and again. You defiantly want to take sometime to look through his videos, nature curriculums, books and such. Here is his free How to Teach Nature Journaling and another free resource of his is Nature Journaling Curriculum.
- Cindy West at Our Journey Westward also has great online nature study lessons and resources available to you.
- Eyes and no eyes by Buckley, Arabella B has formed the spine of our nature / science lessons for our primary years.
