Gardening is a perfect activity for homeschool families – it is fun, experiential, hands-on, and there is so much learning that takes place through the process.  The Backyard Science Garden Journal equips you to turn a backyard garden into a complete science lesson.  

These easy to use print-and-go pages help your child think intentionally about what they’re doing, and they encourage students to think deeper about the world around them.  The Backyard Science Garden Journal capitalizes on the application of the scientific method through experience rather than lesson plans, and draws on skills from a variety of subject areas.

What’s Included in the Backyard Science Garden Journal:

  • Garden Journal cover
  • Garden Map (in 3 designs)
  • Garden Map Grids (in 3 designs)
  • Garden Map Numbered Grids (in 3 designs)
  • Garden Map Key (to use with numbered grids)

  • Garden Observation Sheet
  • Garden Friends (for recording insects you find in your garden)
  • Garden Recipe Card
  • BONUS POSTER: Easy Vegetables to Grow in Your Home Garden

Kids love to observe, explore, ask questions, and discover.  The summer offers them the perfect time to embody the purpose and heart of scientific study and discovery, though they don’t even realize that they’re doing it!  Backyard Science activities equip you to take full advantage of the rich learning environment that surrounds your children every day by building on what your children are naturally drawn to and making the most of every opportunity.
