Exploring Nature With Children: A Guided Journal

Exploring Nature With Children is a complete, year-long curriculum designed to guide you, step by step, through an entire calendar year of nature study. Completely self-contained, this book has all the information you need to make nature study happen regularly for your family.

Exploring Nature With Children contains:

  • An entire chapter devoted to getting you up and running with nature study.
  • Forty-eight weeks of themed and guided nature study; four weeks for each month of the year, organised by season. Exploring Nature With Children can be used as a whole year’s study, or dipped in and out of as you please.

Each week’s guided study contains the following:

  • A themed nature walk.

Exploring Nature With Children will take you step by step through a themed, Charlotte Mason-style, nature walk. There is no need to hunt through various books and websites; all the information you need is there, leaving you free to enjoy being out in nature with your child.

  • References to the Handbook Of Nature Study.

Exploring Nature With Children is completely self-contained, but includes references to related pages in the Handbook Of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock, should you wish to delve a little deeper.

  • A themed book list.

With books for children of all ages, you will find a comprehensive list of living books related to the week’s nature study theme. Exploring Nature With Children is a self-contained course, so the book list is an extra tool, not a necessity.

You will also receive the booklist compiled separately, should you wish to use it as an additional planning tool.

  • A poem

Related to the nature theme of the week; a classic piece of poetry that can be used for copywork, dictation, or simply to just read aloud and enjoy.

  • A piece of art

The name and details of a piece of art that relates to the nature theme of the week has been included. This can easily be looked up online, or in art books available from your local library.

  • Extension activities for your child

Here you will find a list of activities, written directly to your child, that will extend their nature study throughout the whole of the week. You will find ideas for crafts, writing, science, maths, and more, with absolutely no busy work.

    1. Hello there,

      Thank you for writing. I am terribly sorry that you have not received your download link; the system is automated, so you should have received an email as soon as you checked out. Possibly it has gone straight into your spam folder.I shall reset your purchase now, so that another email is sent to you straight away. It will come from Payhip, the company that hosts my book online. Please could you let me know that you have received it? 

      Warmly, Lynn

    1. Dear Kelly,

      As the title pages were ‘checked out’ separately from the curriculum, so to speak, the curriculum came in a separate email. I shall re-set your purchase now, so that another email is sent to you straight away. It will come from Payhip, the company that host my book online.

      Please could you let me know that you have received it?

      Warmly,
      Lynn

  1. Hi Lynn,

    I ordered your curriculum on 18th September however haven’t received the emails. I have checked in my spam folder but it isn’t there either. Would you mind helping me to rectify this please?

    Many thanks,

    1. Dear Natalie,

      Thank you for writing.

      I am terribly sorry that you have not received your download link; the system is automated, so you should have received an email as soon as you checked out. Hotmail actually has two ‘junk’ folders. Your email may go to the folder called ‘Other’.

  2. Hi. I received my download link, but it seems to be broken. When I try to open it from the saved file on my computer I get an error message.

    1. Dear Faith,

      I’m terribly sorry that you’re having this difficulty. It’s just a regular PDF so sound like it hasn’t perhaps downloaded fully. Please may I suggest downloading again. If you’re still having problems, please do send me an email at: lynn@raisinglittleshoots.com.

      Warmly,
      Lynn
