This Week @ Homeschool FREEBIE of the Day: The Giant Handbook of Nature Study

I love what Homeschool FREEBIE of the Day is offering this week!   This week’s FREEBIE download is so big, they’ve divided it up over the whole week.  I’ll try to remember to remind you every day so that you (and I) will not miss any part of it!

Here are the details from their Heads Up email:

Well, this week we’re doing something a bit different at HomeschoolFreebieOfTheDay — bringing you ONE great resource that is so big, we had to divide it into SIX separate ebooks:


THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY

This is a HUGE (940 pages) and absolutely wonderful teaching guide full of hundreds of nature study lessons,
activities and discussion questions. It is a complete multi-year nature study curriculum that you can use
for years to come. It is so big (over 100 megs in size) we had to divide it into six manageable ebooks for you.

Here’s the rundown:

———–

Monday, January 18th:
THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY, PART I – TEACHER’S GUIDE & OVERVIEW plus THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY, PART II –  BIRDS & FISH

In PART ONE, you get a very helpful and practical teacher’s guide, including an overview of the purpose, scope and style of the handbook… how each lesson is set up… what nature study should do for your children… how to to tie math, art, geography, gardening, agriculture & science into your nature study, and more. Each lesson begins with a “teacher’s story” which can be read to students along with suggested activities & methods, followed by great discussion questions.

In PART TWO, we jump into the actual lessons, this time devoted to birds & fish. As you’ll quickly see, these lessons are wonderfully written, blending history, humor, a bit of poetry, and a delightful sense of wonder into these nature studies.

Over the rest of the week, then, we’ll bring you the rest of the book:
