Nature Studies

With summer in full swing it's hard to believe that in just a month it'll be time to register for another year of homeschool.

Already I've begun to plan our curriculum, and make up our 2011-2012 calendar. One thing we plan to incorporate this year are Nature Studies.

My daughter is a seventh grader this year, so it will be more challenging to keep her interest. Here are some links we've found that may prove to be beneficial. All free as usual. Any helpful advise in the comments would be appreciated. lol

Field Guide
Put in your zip code for local information.

I will add to these links as we find useful ones. We plan to film, and get lots of digital images. Do some journaling and sketching as well. Also since she's older she will be required to post her studies on her blog.

  1. Nature study sounds like a good way to get the year started. I can't believe that vacation is almost over. May God bless your upcoming school year. Enjoy Homeschool while you can. It's kind of sad when they leave the nest. BUT .. It sounds like you already have a fun year planned. (Homeschool is such a beautiful way to make lots of precious memories.) Thanks for the links.

  2. Hi, I just found your site through CSAHM and love it! I too am finishing up our 2011-2012 school schedule and curriculum...didn't summer just start? Well, it feels that way to me! Anyway, I look forward to spending more time here! God bless you!
