Why No Sweat Nature Study LIVE?

Children in 1st-8th grades can enjoy LIVE, interactive, online, nature-based science classes with Mrs. Cindy West twice a month. Each 30-60 minute class includes deep science teaching with an emphasis on scientific vocabulary while the students create a unique nature journal page.

Members certainly don’t have to attend the LIVE classes, though. You’ll get access to a growing library of previously recorded lessons that you can view at your convenience 24/7 for the duration of your membership. Class topics cover the gamut of plant, animal, earth, and space science!

Each lesson comes with a downloadable packet full of information, specimen images, vocabulary, and bonus lesson ideas for students and parents to use. Parents receive a free nature study curriculum download each month, too!

Please enjoy a free sample lesson to see if No Sweat Nature Study LIVE will be a wonderful addition to your homeschool!

2022 Supplementary Nature Study Books

For each No Sweat Nature Study LIVE lesson, at least one helpful book is suggested to help parents add layers to the learning. These living books and nature guides are not at all necessary to get the most from the classes with Mrs. Cindy. They are simply fun and informative suggestions.

If you aren’t a member yet, these books will be great reads in your homeschool or classroom. However, your students will get SO MUCH more benefit by using them alongside the LIVE lessons.
