"My Curriculum Wasn't Working!"

"When a homeschool science curriculum just wasn’t making us happy, I had a friend suggest Julia Rothman books. Luckily, I stumbled upon this companion notebookbook for Nature Anatomy. It was exactly what I wanted! Something that would foster our 6th grader’s imagination, broaden observation skills, while still leaving room for expounding and self-exploration into various topics. I heartily recommend and encourage anyone to purchase this product. I WISH I would have purchased the complete set in the beginning. Yes, I like it that much!" - Dedra S.

Like many homeschooling resources, there is no set grade level. Kids of all ages will enjoy Nature AnatomyFarm AnatomyOcean Anatomy, and Food Anatomy because they are beautifully illustrated books full of interesting facts and hand-drawn illustrations. The notebook companions will work best with students in 3rd grade and up, but they are meant to be very flexible.

Many homeschooling families who enjoy unit studies and piecing their own curriculum together use The Julia Rothman Collection + Notebook Companions to create a full science curriculum for elementary students by adding in additional resources.

Here’s an example of how one might do so:

 

When you get to the section on whales in Ocean Anatomy you would use it alongside the Ocean Notebook and add in some extra books about whales, do a research paper on a specific whale type, and watch some videos for a complete study on whales.

Science Spine Examples & Ideas

 

Here are a couple additional examples of how you might use the Julia Rothman Series as a science curriculum spine with an elementary student:

Using Nature Anatomy and the Nature Notebook – In Chapter One of Nature Anatomy students will learn about the earth’s rotation, layers of the earth, rocks and minerals, fossils, landforms, mountains and more.

You will use the notebook companion to journal your studies and you can expand on this chapter using printables, such as the resources listed below. All links are found in the Nature Notebook listed out by chapter.

  • Rocks, Gemstones, and Minerals Cheat Sheets and Fact Cards
  • Astronomy Printables
  • Earth Science Printables and Resources – Archaeology, Caves & Geology
  • Learning About the Layers of the Earth
  • Layers and Spheres of the Earth Notebooking Journal
  • Rock Terminology Copywork Notebook
  • Printables and Resources on Rocks and Fossils
  • Paleontology Printables and Resources
  • Learn All About Volcanoes with Printables, Unit Studies and More
  • Historic Volcanoes Notebooking Research Journal

In Chapter One of Farm Anatomy, you will learn about the layers of the soil, the makeup of topsoil, soil texture, crop rotation, soil conservation, weather, composting, and more.

Just this one chapter brings about so many ideas on how you can expand this to really dig in (pun intended) to learn more about soil and crops.

We have listed out free resources by chapter in the Farm Notebook just like we did for the Nature Notebook. Here’s some of the resources we link to in the Farm Notebook for Chapter One:

  • Resources to Help Kids Learn About Soil and Composting
  • Composting With Kids Printables Pack
  • Herb Gardening for Kids: 5 Tips to Get Them Growing
  • All About Clouds Printables And Activities
  • Learning About Clouds: Free Worksheets, Printables and More
  • Types of Clouds Guided Drawing
  • Resources to Teach Kids About Recycling

As you go through the Food Notebook, take the opportunity to look up recipes for dishes that sound tasty or grab living books to help you learn about the countries the food is from.

If you did this throughout the book for individual topics, you could easily stretch it a full school year and your kids would learn a ton! I dare say you may even be able to use one book for the entire year if you really get creative and incorporate research and living science books.

Our notebook companions are completely self-paced, so you can take as long as you'd like to work through them. 

The Birding Notebook is a companion to Audubon Birding Adventures for Kids, sold separately.

Due to the nature of digital products, there are no refunds. Please view the samples of each product to decide if it's a good fit for your homeschool goals before making your purchase.
