The Science of Seasons (Guest Hollow)

All > Science / Nature > OTHER PROGRAMS / UNIT STUDIES > Instructional Units By Topic > The Science of Seasons (Guest Hollow)

A firm believer that Science should be engaging, hands-on and flexible in the elementary years, I was excited to see this new Charlotte Mason influenced curriculum. Written from a Christian perspective, the heart of the instructional material is found in the Reader. Vibrantly illustrated, the Reader begins with a study of the equinox and a big-picture view of the seasons before starting the focused study on the four seasons which weaves together science, common celebrations throughout the world, and a sampling of seasonal recipes. The reproducible (for individual families) Activity Book brings to life the topics through a wide range of hands-on activities including making your own comic books, copywork, a Greek and Latin Root Cards vocabulary game, art projects, related geography activities, graphing activities, lapbook activities and much more. Due to the vivid color in the activity book and templates, you may wish to invest in one per child, if finances allow. The supplies needed for activities are easily available household items. Earlier I mentioned my philosophy that flexibility is essential for elementary curriculum. Thankfully, the publisher includes free downloadable schedules on her website which include a 14-week schedule, a seasonal schedule or a template to create your own schedule. Also available from the publisher are supplemental lists of living books and Youtube video links if you would like to provide more depth to the lessons. Both the Reader and Activity Book (with answers) are SC. Scripture references in KJV. ~Deanne
