Welcome! I am SO glad you’re interested in the No Sweat Nature Study LIVE sample lesson. We have a lot of fun learning science through nature study together!

Enjoy a FREE Sample No Sweat Nature Study LIVE lesson to see what the buzz is all about.

Twice a month I teach live, interactive lessons for 1st-8th graders. The students create a nature journal page during each lesson, as well as learn tons of scientific facts and vocabulary. Sometimes, we even do experiments together! I’m always pleasantly surprised when younger siblings join along and have fun, too. 🙂

Well over half of our members can’t attend live, but it’s no problem at all. The live lessons are recorded and uploaded into a members-only video library where all previous lessons can be viewed 24/7.
