I find that one of the hardest parts of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy of education for modern parents to adapt is Nature Study. In this video, I give you some tips and resources to take the fear out of studying nature with your children. I share some of my favorite resources, and I take my youngest on a nature walk and show your how we do Nature Study at our house.
I hope you enjoy the video! My kids finally wore me down and we started a family YouTube channel. I plan on doing some more videos about how we make use of Charlotte Mason’s philosophy of education, as well as book reviews, fun field trips and more. So if you like what you see, we’d love for you to subscribe to the channel!
Here are the books I recommended in the video:
Emily Cook is the author and creator of the secular homeschool curriculum Build Your Library, a literature-based K-12 program infused with the teachings of Charlotte Mason. She writes full year lesson plans as well as shorter topical unit studies. Emily has been homeschooling her four children in Southern NH for 15 years. She is passionate about reading aloud to children of all ages and loves to share her love of literature with others. She and her family also makes incredibly dorky videos about homeschooling, books and more on Youtube at ARRRGH! Schooling. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
