As a foundational Charlotte Mason philosophy, nature study has been shown to trains a child’s power of observation and benefits children both academically and emotionally. In this talk, Jeannie will share the studies that support the need for children to spend time in nature and how you can make it rewarding for the whole family. She will discuss foundational teaching tools, field guide applications, teaching techniques, and how to create nature journals.
There is a reason that American school children score at the very bottom on international science assessments. It is the ineffective way in which science is taught in schools. Most of us were subjected to this system and obtained only a cursory understanding of science. As homeschoolers, we have the freedom and opportunity to throw out those unproductive techniques. We can truly impart a deeper knowledge and love for science. Jeannie will share five vital steps, inspired by Charlotte Mason, that will ensure you impart a superior science education. These five steps will not only enrich your homeschool, they will prepare your children for high school and college.
