Summer Nature Study and More


Would you like to enjoy a nature walk or nature study, but you worry about covering those formal areas of science in biology, physics, and chemistry?

This nature study allows you to enjoy nature and time with your child outdoors. At the same time you will help guide him and make connections between his natural world around him and more formal scientific concepts.

The Summer Nature Study and More has topics for June, July and August. Each month has several topics pertinent to the season. For each topic, you receive living book reading suggestions, questions to promote discussion of the topic during your nature walk, suggested nature walk or post-walk activities, and scientific connection topics.

The scientific connection topics extend your nature study observations into a study of scientific concepts in biology, physical science, or chemistry. You receive a list of suggested living books and a list of experiments and activities related to the extended topic.

For example, a nature study of bird and animal migration extends into a study of the earth's magnetic fields and magnetism.

Also included throughout the book is poetry relevant to each topic in the nature study to use as copywork or literature study.

At the back of the book is a section offering recommendations in nature journaling and sketching . There are also nature journal notebooking pages to use during your nature study to write your observations or copywork and make sketches of your topics of study.

This nature study method helps you and your child bridge the information you gather from your personal experiences and observations with formal scientific concepts. So, get ready to ditch those science textbooks, delve into your natural living world and guide your child into experiencing science the natural and personal way!

If you wish to have an entire year's worth of nature study at your fingertips, along with an additional poetry study at a more economical price, check out our Nature Study, Nature Journals, and Poetry Through the Year e-book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
