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:

————

Tuesday, January 19th:
THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY, PART III – AMPHIBIANS, REPTILES & MAMMALS

————

Wednesday, January 20th:
THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY, PART IV – INSECTS & INVERTEBRATES

————

Thursday, January 21st:
THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY, PART V – PLANTS AND TREES

————

Friday, January 22nd:
THE GIANT HANDBOOK OF NATURE STUDY, PART VI – EARTH, WATER & SKY

————

Check these out all this week and see why we decided to devote the full week to bringing you this excellent study resource curriculum!  It is just great.

This Week @ Homeschool Freebie of the Day

Homeschool Freebie of the Day, one of my favorite sources for free downloads, is back after taking a holiday break.  Their Heads Up email has hit my inbox, so here’s a cut & paste of what’s in store this week:

Monday, January 4th:
Supermom’s Simple Guide to Healthier Eating for Beginners and Beyond (PDF ebook)

“I know I should be eating healthier, but I don’t know where to begin!”
“A healthier diet would be nice, but my husband and kids will never go for it.”
“Healthy food doesn’t taste good.” Have you ever had any of these thoughts?
Many people do! Incorporating healthful habits is important for all of us,
but it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what to do, how to do it,
all the while wondering whether or not we’re going to like the taste.

In her long-anticipated first book, “Supermom” Erica Johns shares her
philosophy of taking realistic baby steps toward your healthy eating goals,
rather than burning yourself out on extreme health plans. A homeschooling
mother of six, she understands the unique challenges of time management
and healthy living on a modest budget.  A must for homeschool moms that
want to start out the new year with a practical plan for health and
weight loss that works!
