Back To Homeschool Facebook Party – Pocket Naturalist Guide Giveaway


Let’s kick the party off with a giveaway geared toward this week’s Nature Week theme at The Homeschool Scientist. I LOVE these folding, laminated Pocket Naturalist Field Guides from Nature’s Workshop Plus. (They, also, have activity books to go along with them, but I haven’t tried them out…yet!)


I bought a couple a while back at their booth at our local homeschool convention. They are lightweight so they are so much better for  stowing in a backpack on the trail. Since these are laminated, if they get wet or dirty, just wipe them off. No harm done!

Nature’s Workshop Plus is The Homeschool Scientist’s recommended vendor for dissection specimens and lab supplies. The quality of their dissection specimens is simply superior to others I have used. 

Enter to win either a Butterflies and Moths Pocket Guide or an Animal Tracks guide by following the Rafflecopter instructions. Thanks for partying with us!
