Spring is a great time for a nature study. As we have began our transition to a Charlotte Mason homeschool, we have decided to begin integrating a Nature study into our week. We have gotten a nature journal and some supplies and started our weekly nature walks. However, since we are just getting started I have still been trying to decide the best way to work a nature study into our school.
I am very impressed with Handbook of Nature Study’s website article How to Organize Your Nature Notebook Page article. I think this looks like a great way to start a Nature Study and, since we are just beginning, this will give us a great way to keep it going for many years and have a good way to reference back to particular notations.
I’m looking forward to getting this together and I hope it will be a great way to make a wonderful keepsake for our nature studies.
Do you keep a Nature Study Notebook? What works best for you?
