Come learn with us about the natural sciences in a fun, immersive way! In this class, well be exploring the natural world and learning nature identification skills (well learn to identify common birds, trees, reptiles, wildflowers, insects, rocks, and etc.), survival skills (well learn what plants are edible and medicinal, how to build shelters, how to do natural first aid, etc.), and even some art skills (with nature journaling!) by spending time outside, in our own backyards, the Charlotte Mason way. 

Well learn about a new topic each week with pictures, videos, and discussion and kids will be sent home with craft and activity ideas that incorporate their newfound natural knowledge.

Students will learn interesting new facts about the natural world and most importantly will learn how to better appreciate, wonder at, and connect with the life outside their windows.

Each student is responsible for attending the weekly classes and treating fellow students (as well as the inhabitants of the outside world they’ll be interacting with) with respect.

As this is a Charlotte Mason-style class, we will mostly stick with the “no homework” policy of Charlotte Mason. However, since this class only meets weekly, there is one exception: at least one weekly nature journal entry. There will also always be optional homework including things like ideas for outdoor activities, crafts, recipes, videos to watch, articles and such to read, websites to explore, etc.

Supplies/Resources Needed:

sketchbook (for nature journaling)

sketching pencil

set of colored pencils

Optional Supplies

Binocular (highly recommended)

Portable pencil case

Portable watercolor set

Water brush

Magnifying glass

Plastic bead organizer (for nature specimens)

Field guides (National Audubon Society is great for nearly everything, as well as Peterson and National Geographic, Sibley is awesome for birds specifically, as well as Kaufman or Stokes; more info posted on Canvas, accessible once you sign up)

Access to a smart phone and field guide apps (once again more info on Canvas)

SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY PRICE – $150.00 for the 10-week session!

NOTE:

Registration deadline is January 1, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
