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.
