I’ve mentioned before that one of my favorite things about Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophy is her emphasis on nature study.
Children are naturally drawn to nature. They love to examine insects and birds and flowers. They love to ask questions and to find out “why.”
Some of my happiest memories from 19 years of motherhood revolve around time spent outside with my kids.
Reading outside together on a quilt, collecting wildflowers in a field, and playing together in the creek are just a few memories that come to mind. We’ve studied baby birds, nests, butterflies, turtles, frogs, and anything else we happened upon.
Not everything has been rosy, however. There have been times (especially when everyone was little) that I was just too tired to plan anything. Sometimes nature study didn’t happen even though I wanted it to.
What I needed was a simple nature study plan that would easily fit into our days and not require too much preparation from me.
