Class Description

Seasons Afield is a nature study for primary grade students (K-3rd). The field guides will direct the studies of the natural world, using picture books to take students on a journey through the seasons of their schoolyear, Autumn, Winter, and Spring!

The class explores the outdoor world through observation and learning the science behind discoveries. Students will learn about decomposition and mushroom mycelium; become a tree detective and study the senescence of leaves; practice cyanotype printing to capture the structure of a snowflake; discover the life cycles and habitats of their favorite creatures. They will encounter changes in flora and fauna through fieldwork experiments, guided watercolor lessons, literature, and scientific wonder, all while awakening a love of nature.

This homeschool science course covers biology, chemistry, botany, ecology, zoology, earth science, field science, watercolor art, handcrafts, music, and art history!
