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.

  • 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.

  11. I have a 5 year old and a nearly 4 year old. I already have done some nature study with them. Is it fine to start this in the spring? Would it be better to wait till fall or to wait a few years?

    • Hello there!

      Thank you for your interest in my book. It’s great to hear that you are already getting out and about in nature with your little ones 🙂

      You can begin at any point in the year, and make as much or as little use of the activities as you wish. Some families just use it as a guidebook for the parents, others are following the relevant activities, it’s entirely up to you.

      You can see the table of contents and a sample chapter here:

      This should help you decide if Exploring Nature will work for your family.

      I also have a page of links to reviews of the book here:

      Do let me know if you have any further questions.

      Happy exploring!

  49. We used Exploring Nature last year and LOVED it! Are you planning to write any other volumes or resources? I’m looking for an earth science curriculum this year, and find myself wishing there was an Exploring Nature, earth science edition!!
