RAR #222: Read Books, Go Outside: Simple Science for Homeschooling Families
Oh boy, do we have a treat for you today!
Our team here at Read-Aloud Revival has been hard at work on a brand new booklist for you and I’ve invited Kortney Garrison and Kara Anderson from the RAR team back to this side of the podcast to tell you all about it.
Nature study can be an intimidating subject that carries a lot of expectations in the homeschooling world. It’s something we want to do, but it can get pushed to the side because we don’t always have the energy to tramp around the woods with a watercolor set.
So this project started with our team asking, how can we simplify nature study and make it more likely to happen? Could it really be as simple as reading a book and doing an activity?
We think so! And that’s where our brand new booklist and activity guide comes in.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Why we chose 12 books per season, and why you don’t have to read them all
- How we paired books and activities to make them as accessible as we could
- How the guide brings know, do, and love to nature study
