Unique Aspects of These Journaling Resources

Both the “Burrows, Beehives & Beds,” and the “Habitats, Hollows & Homes Journal” offer nature observations to get kids interacting with the seven ecosystems they’ll study this year.  Students in each age group will do the same or similar observations, each at their own level.

The observations in each unit involve many different types of nature experiences.  Students are asked to observe and draw “one small square” of a habitat, write down what they see or sketch it, participate in experiments either outdoors or inside, observe animal behaviors, look into plant life or get to know natural processes, or try real-life learning activities.  Along the way, they’ll also get a feel for some of the people who work with animals or their habitats, and investigate natural substances such as sand, ice, grass, rock, leaves, and water.

What is in the Animals and Their Worlds Activity Resources?

WinterPromise considers itself a curriculum that embraces the “Experience Approach,” offering Charlotte-Mason style learning opportunities with up-to-date materials that make the most of technology, too.  In Animals and Their Worlds you’ll encounter a lot of our signature “Experiences" in the resources: Animal Easy Shape Drawing Book, Make-Your-Own Animal Book, Alphabet Fun Pack, Diorama Kit, Deep into Habitats, and the Height Chart!
