During the elementary years, your science lessons should accomplish these 3 things:
1. Nurture within your child a sense of wonder at God's creation.
2. Cultivate a habit of careful observation.
3. Lay the groundwork of personal experience that will support future science studies.

I just received my wonderful copies of Outdoor Secrets to use for my Kindergartner in the fall and I'm excited about it!
I'm looking forward to teaching these timeless truths packed up in character building stories with God's wonderful creation wrapped up inside. We'll learn about Nature Notebooks, trees, plants, animals, birds, seasons, weather and water in our science adventure using this Charlotte Mason's living book.
Another exciting thing I can't get over are the affordable prices on SCM website. The payment is easy and I received my books within a week. I'm very pleased with SCM and want to share her God given wisdom with all I know. : )
