Spring has sprung! And nowhere is this more evident than during a nature walk. Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining bright. It’s the perfect time to get outdoors and explore nature!
Why not begin with the loveliest creation of all–those blooming beauties–wildflowers? If you’re like me, you might not be sure where to begin. NaturExplorers’ Wonderful Wildflowers, from Shining Dawn Books, makes it easy to figure out!
This awe-inspiring unit study lays out a plan perfect for one nature walk or a dozen. With living books, carefully selected non-fiction books and websites, tons of hands-on activities, notebooking pages, and a complete list of ideas for how to learn about and enjoy wildflowers, your students will be begging for more nature walks and creating a lifetime of memories while photographing and drawing all of their discoveries.
For the Charlotte Mason fan in you, this unit (and all NaturExplorers units) also incorporates studies of artists and their works, composers and their works, and poetry! Toss in a little Bible, geography and lots of science, of course, and you have a pretty well-rounded unit study! But even if you aren’t a Charlotte Mason or unit study homeschooler, you will find NaturExplorers units to be of benefit to your homeschool. They can easily be adapted into your science curriculum or just used for fun nature walks!
NaturExplorers are perfect for homeschooling families, co-ops, nature clubs, 4-H clubs, scouting troops, and any other groups of children interested in exploring God’s amazing creation. Although they are geared toward elementary-aged children, there are ideas within the unit making it easily adaptable for younger and older children as well.
