When I first discovered Emery Lewis Howe’s wonderful nature book, I was fascinated by her ability to teach nature study through engaging stories and dialogue. My children, however, weren’t so thrilled with the writing style which was very formal and in keeping with the language of the 1920s, when the book was first published. This workbook is the result of hours of editing, updating, and reformatting to bring you a more modern version while still maintaining Mrs. Howe’s beautiful storytelling.
With this 140-page full-color nature study course, you’ll learn about earthworms, ants, spiders, butterflies, moths, and honeybees through open-and-go units ideal for elementary students. Each unit includes
- Living Book story
- References to other living books for further study
- Related videos and websites
- Hands-on activities
- Worksheets & extensions
Every unit contains a Planning Guide to assist you in structuring your lessons, or you can opt to simply pick and choose activities that your family will enjoy. The course is extremely flexible and easy to use.
