Boy, am I excited to introduce you to Kristina Garner in this post! She and her girls enjoyed some exciting, hands-on nature study in their backyard creek recently and Kristina is sharing the experiences with all of us.

Nature study has been one of the most rewarding subjects in our homeschool through the years. It reaches deeply into every single realm of science. It gets us outdoors for fresh air, sunshine and exercise. It creatively includes other subjects like language arts, math, geography, and even history.

You can study its properties, its physical states, the water cycle, weather events, the geography of water around our world, water sources, water treatment, and water conservation. You can learn about water as biomes and the various life that inhabits each. You […]
