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.

I do apologise but I cannot find the payhip link anywhere in my emails! Please could I have the link resent to me again. I would really appreciate it. Many thanks
I work for a public charter school where we allow families to purchase curricula of their choice with public school funds, provided that the curriculum is not “faith based” or “religious.” Some Christian vendors have provided us with a list of their resources that do not have religious materials, those that can be purchased with public school funds, or those considered “charter school friendly.” Do you have such a list?
It seems that you have a single volume with religious content only on certain weeks, but I wanted to make sure there was not a “secular” version as well.
I just purchased the curriculum but I didn’t receive the links via email and I accidentally closed the page with the dowloads. I downloaded the curriculum but there was another file I didn’t get to download (something related to books if I remeber correctly)
Would you be so kind to help me with this?
I am trying to figure out what subjects this curriculum covers. Can someone point me in the right direction?
I LOVE THIS! Great work and totally worth every penny!
