Nature Notebook - Companion to Nature Anatomy by Julia Rothman
Many homeschooling families incorporate the study of nature into their daily lessons. We have enjoyed using Nature Anatomy in our studies and have referred to it often for reference, as the beautiful hand-drawn sketches bring nature to life.
Because Nature Anatomy is a popular book found on many homeschool shelves, we have created a notebook to accompany it, with the publisher’s permission.
Nature 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 in nature, labeling and diagramming, and more.
We have included links throughout the Nature Notebook for extra free printables and resources to expand your study on individual topics.
Like our other open & go curriculum, there is no prep-work involved – you simply grab your copy of the book and your notebooking journal and work at your own pace.
Learn more about Nature 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.
NOTE: We are young earth creationists and have found it difficult to use many nature and science books without having to skim over at least one reference to age of earth. The only section I recall mentioning the age of the earth is the 1st chapter under “Layers of the Earth,” where is says “Planet Earth was formed 4.54 billion years ago.” I do not recall any mention of it elsewhere or the reference of evolution. I just skipped that part as it was once sentence.
