Nature Study Inspiration...
Okay, so I am trying not to leave many posts about blog giveaways, but I just had to leave this one. I am in a homeschool slump. I mean, I am missing the excitement and inspiration that makes the days memorable and pleasing. When I came across this site (which I found in a HomeschoolFree Stuff newsletter), I just had to mention it... It is a site that challenges you and I to learn by what we have on hand... nature. It is worth looking around to see what interests you or your kids to learn more about. I am drawn to many things, now I just need to decide what I would like us to focus on. It is great idea to utilize for the rest of this school year, but I figure it will also come in handy for over the summertime. Take a look when you have a chance. The link is just below.
You could win one of six different resources. Just leave a comment by Friday, March 26th at Noon PST and you will be entered for the giveaway.
Also, check out her new Spring Nature Study with Art and Music Appreciation ebook. The study is based on Anna Comstock's Handbook of Nature Study. A 1918 version is available for free download on Google Books. You can download the Handbook of Nature Study for free at Internet Archive. The Spring Nature Study ebook contains fifty pages of Outdoor Hour challenges, art appreciation, and music appreciation. That just might keep your kids/students busy for nearly three months!
