DIYHomeschooler.com offers this excellent nature study book and curriculum free to homeschoolers. Here’s what they say about it:
Our Wonderful World by Emery Lewis Howe is a rich nature study book available for free download covering backyard neighbors, feathered friends, garden life, four-footed comrades, and the earth and its neighbors.
Written for young children, this treasure includes experiments, related Scripture verses, and activities such as drawing, narrating, and writing.
By covering one chapter each week, there are 32 weeks worth of lessons (not including this introduction). We’ve added suggestions, helps for Mom, and resource recommendations that can round out the studies for older students.
By adding a weekly lab, and more related, comprehensive readings (such as a biology text), you may find you have enough material to qualify as a biology credit for an older student.
For the youngest children, simply reading the book may be enough. You know your children best, but don’t overwhelm them. Have fun!
