Back To Homeschool Facebook Party – Nature Unit Study Giveaway

Enjoying the party?

I have already gushed about my love for the nature unit studies by Shining Dawn Books during Nature Week going on right now at The Homeschool Scientist. I am so excited that Shining Dawn Books and CurrClick have given you an opportunity to win one tonight! The Incredible Creeks unit study looks like so much fun! It is on our science to-do list in a couple weeks.

Just follow the Rafflecopter instructions to enter! Contest ends at midnight EST tonight. Thanks for partying with us!

  1. We love going to the creek near our home. This would be a lot of fun.

  2. Our curriculum has a nature study and we follow a few blogs…and what interests us at the time.

  3. nature walks

  4. I did a creek walk recently with our little co-op! It was amazing how the normally rowdy kids really paid attention to everything around them!

  5. Get in it!

  6. Mostly, it consists of nature walks and spending time with our Aunt who loves nature. But, that time is limited or we just don’t make the effort like we should.

  7. Angelle Tibbets says:

    Nature walks, videos, books.

  8. We study pretty informally at this point. We go outside and see what there is to see. We draw in nature journals and take notes. Look up what we find etc.

  9. We go out and just be in it and watch what catches our eye. Love the trip to George Washington Carver’s birthplace and we saw snapping turtles and a park ranger showed us where the bullfrogs hid at.

  10. We love to camp.. we take that time to go out and look and observe :)

  11. erica sandwall says:

    love being creeks and my does too.

  12. We our outing nature everyday learning- weather permitting of course. My 5 yr old is a nature lover.

  13. Lawana Schrieffer says:

    We have done some experiments and nature walks.

  14. Susan A. says:

    Nature walks!

  15. Get outside! :-)

  16. Looks like a great unit study!

  17. Kristy Tomasello says:

    We study nature hands on!! Love to just go out and get into it. We just had some of nature in the house, we watched caterpillars change to butterflies :)

  18. This would be awesome!

  19. Sara Baase says:


  20. Kristina Best says:

    Other then walking into town no not really.

  21. When we’re outside my 4 year old will ask questions about different things outside and I just answer him! That’s how we’ve been doing it..just using real life activities.

  22. Not really good at this since we live in the big city and have to drive quite a ways to find anything. But I want to be better! (And praying for God to move us to some acreage in the country!)

  23. We go on nature hikes/walks at local nature centers, parks, etc. If we cannot get out then we do it from our balcony.

  24. Anna Burkett says:

    We study nature with hikes, or online and on TV.

  25. We’re more naturalists than anything. :)

  26. Love to camp as well!

  27. Nature Notebooking and Book Basket time!

  28. We enjoy using Apologia Science, and Charlotte Mason science/creation for our curriculum. And the main thing is we experience it, hands on, outdoors! :)

  29. Elizabeth Bovender says:

    We plan on taking our kids on walks and talk about how God created the world….

  30. We go on nature hikes and my son loves to come up with his own experiments. Not always a good thing but I love his creativity.

  31. Mainly being out in it, and then looking up answers to our questions! And we do some nature journaling sometimes.

  32. Renae Perry says:

    By spending time out among God’s creation – studying & admiring His handiwork!

  33. We are going to start doing nature walks this year and so excited to do them!

  34. Melissa Sack says:

    Hike while geocaching

  35. We haven’t! I guess we do watch wild Keats, does that count?

  36. Most of our nature study is from books. My kids love to explore the backyard, but it is harder to do more than that in an urban area.

  37. In our yard and in our books. We have a creek in walking distance and it would be a great study.

  38. We do a lot of observation :)

  39. Roxanne mclintock says:

    We have a creek on our property….would love this.

  40. By getting outside and exploring creation!

  41. Lori Beck says:

    We love pond exploration and looking for streams out on our nature hikes.

  42. Nature walks!

  43. We study hands-on with nature. We have 10 acres crawling with different animals, birds, insects, etc. We raise our own chickens, gardens, and fruit trees. We also have textbooks we use, but most of our science is propelled by the kids wanting to know more about what they see, hear and feel.

  44. Quiet observation….a learned idea for active (and loud) 4, 5 and 7 year old children!

  45. Kathy Walker says:

    We camp we go on hikes.

  46. We pull out the nature study guides, sketch books and get outside!

  47. We spend time outside as much as possible. We watch birds, study plants & flowers – mainly observations at this point – 4 & 6 yrs old. We even raised 11 monarch caterpillars this spring!

  48. I love to go creekin and watching my boy catch crawdads!

  49. Right now we have a poster on the wall and we are recording all the birds we see around our home and in our travels.

  50. We keep field guides on hand all the time for nature walks.

  51. Love creeks and the critters that live there.

  52. giving them time to be outside and watching good quality nature videos

  53. Christina Hester says:

    We don’t do anything official. We go to parks or just being outside and when we see something interesting or that we want to know more about we look it up. I know we could def use something more.

  54. Rebecca C says:

    Nature walks.

  55. Outside and as up close and personal as we can get, with sketchpads, nature guides and binoculars in tow. We recently found out about NaturExplorers and want to include them in our studies this year.

  56. This sounds intriguing! Thanks for the chance to win!

  57. Sorry didn’t read the directions. We enjoy it up close and personal.

  58. WE are always outside studying nature. We use the Apologia books and the Animal planet

  59. We go outside and when we find something inspiring the girls draw it in their notebook and we look up info about it when we go inside.

  60. We like to take walks along the river.

  61. We draw in nature journals and spend time outside.

  62. Cassie Bartholomew says:

    Hands-on in different environments

  63. We garden, go to parks , beaches and explore different environments.

  64. Kd Blackburn says:

    This looks like a really fun study for my boys!

  65. SandyKay Briggs says:

    We love to take a walk on nature trails or going camping

  66. We just moved to a a new place with great natural surroundings. So far we’re just exploring and trying to identify everything.

  67. Reading book & nature walks.

  68. We get outside, take walks & hikes, get dirty. Riverside can provide so many opportunities: tracks, river/stream ecosystems and vegetation. We then expand on our time outside by expanding on what we learn through art, science, math and english (writing) bringing it all together and really making it stick!

  69. We study it most by getting out in it. We spend a good part of our day outdoors – often even doing “book work” outside. We are always observing bugs, frogs, birds etc. Sometimes we’ll go on a “treasure hunt” for interesting finds and see what we can learn about them.
