Farm Notebook - Companion to Farm Anatomy by Julia Rothman

Many homeschooling families incorporate the study of farm life into their lessons. We have enjoyed using Farm Anatomy in our studies and have referred to it often for reference, as the beautiful hand-drawn sketches bring the world of the farm to life, even if you live in the city.

Because Farm Anatomy is a popular book found on many homeschool shelves, we have created a notebook to accompany it, with the publisher’s permission.

Farm Anatomy is a secular book and our companion notebook can be used with any worldview (see note below). Although this notebook is very flexible and can be adapted for younger and older children, it is best suited to grades 3-8.

This notebook will follow along with the topics in the book and include places for written narration of information read, sketches of objects found on the farm, labeling and diagramming, and more.

We have included links throughout the Farm Notebook for extra free printables and resources to expand your study on individual topics.

Learn more about Farm Anatomy and the other books in the series by visiting the publisher’s website.


We also have notebook companions for other volumes in the Julia Rothman Series. Click here to view them.

    This is our first year trying notebooking and so far we love it.

    I am in love with the Julia Rothman books but wasn’t sure how to go about incorporating them into our homeschool day. Enter Daily Skill Building Notebook. This journal is amazing. The amount of time that must have gone into building this notebook is unbelievable. This was the first one I purchased and was so blown away by it I have since purchased the Ocean and Food Anatomy journals. My 11 and 14 year olds have really enjoyed these journals! I highly recommend them!

  3. Marcia Cabaday

    I am not sure why I put off buying this. The books are beautiful and so is this journal to do with it.

    My two girls (ages 17 and 9) have both loved it, more so my 9 year old on this one.

    I bought this for my 13-year-old sister that is homeschooled. She lives on our family farm and has always been slightly interested in farming but wasn’t as immersed in it as I was as a child. The Farm Anatomy book and notebook have ignited a passion in her to learn and do more on our farm every single day. She has already read through the entire book and is reading it again to do the notebook lessons simultaneously.

    This was a game-changer and really catered to her learning style. She has ADHD and has always struggled to read and do workbooks. This was an absolute delight for her to read and work through. We will definitely be purchasing all the books and notebooks available in this collection.

    I bought the box set comprising of Food Anatomy, Nature Anatomy and Farm Anatomy a while back. I wasn’t quite sure how to implement them in our homeschool for our child who does not particularly like reading and writing.

    His interests are outdoors, hands-on and practical work. He has just started the Farm Anatomy notebook and is really enjoying it. He recently successfully incubated and hatched chicken, guinea fowl, chuker and turkey eggs, so the book and notebook have been a lovely addition to his learning.

    I’m particularly impressed at the effort he puts into his drawings in the notebook. Thank you for these lovely notebooks. It’s really made my life a lot easier and awesome to see the learning happening in our home.

      You are so very welcome. I am thrilled that your son is loving them, they will make beautiful keepsakes!

    I’m trying this out with my daughter. I purchased the Farm Anatomy text book to add to our homeschool science and
    4-H knowledge books. We have chickens, turkeys and goats as well as a learning garden. She loves all things hands-on, colorful, drawing and animal related. She has already read ahead to chapter 4 in the text! I’m buying the notebook enhanced learning and to compliment the text as well as reinforcing the information discussed in the text. I’m excited about this style of learning and all the material it covers! Its not only looks well organized but inviting and fun to do. Thank you for creating such a hands on notebook for all the right brain learners.

    • Carrie Fernandez

      It sounds like the Farm Notebook will be a perfect fit for your daughter! Thanks for your feedback. 🙂

  7. C Spalding

    After doing the Nature Notebook last school year, my 8 year-old daughter wanted to continue this year with the Farm Notebook, especially since she loves horses. And she asked for Ocean Anatomy for her birthday and plans on doing the Ocean Notebook next. She has really loved the combination of Julia Rothman’s books along with these accompanying Notebooks. I would definitely recommend these, especially if your child loves to draw as mine does.

  8. Yvie

    Our middle schooler LOVES animals and working outdoors on our hobby farm…but he’s not a huge fan of school. We purchased Farm Anatomy and this accompanying workbook, and he was actually asking to do it! This workbook helps walk you through the Julia Rothman text – you’ll definitely need it – letting student re-create drawings and write notes from the text to help reinforce concepts covered.

  9. Lucy Wallis

    We are homesteaders and have farm animals. I’ve had the Julia Rothman series on our bookself for a long time, but struggled to incorporate it into our homeschool day in a way that would engage my kids. This is it! Thank you for making these companion guides.
