Toddleabout Nature Explorations are secular, Mason-inspired nature study classes held weekly with easy, recurring enrollment. Class material and activities are geared toward preschool children, approximately 2-5 years.

Our outdoor nature study classroom takes students into the woods of Valhalla Park* in Holt.

Each one-hour class has four main parts:

  • Gather – Everyone gathers around our circle time blanket for stretches and mindfulness exercises.
  • Explore – We’ll have a brief 10-15 minute group discussion on the topic of the day.
  • Encounter – Students will engage in hands on activities such as crafts, science demonstrations, and hands-on interactions with live class pets.
  • Reflect – Students pack up supplies and regroup for a brief show and tell, where they can share their art, observations, or something of interest they have found. Class is then dismissed and students can then free play in the woods, hike with their family, or simply leave.

 

In addition to the Toddleabout Nature Explorations, we also offer:

Walkabout Nature Excursions are nature study classes geared towards children 6-12.
Roamabout Nature Expeditions (coming eventually) are advanced nature study classes geared towards children 6-12 who have mastered basic nature study concepts.

Little Leafers Autumn Nature Study Download Page

So you bought the Little Leafers Autumn Nature Study class and you were brought here.

This page is going to be an important place for you for these next 6 weeks, so be sure to bookmark it!

Every week you’re going to need to download two files: 1 weekly teacher’s guide and 1 weekly student pack.

The teacher’s guide has tips and tricks, a written lecture including discussion prompts, the weekly tray work cards, and a suggested craft. Week one teacher’s guide will be a bit longer than the other weeks as it will also walk you through the steps of finding your students, setting up your outdoor classroom, assembling your nature journals, etc..

The student pack is simply nature journal pages for the student’s nature journals.

The concept is pretty simple:
– download both files for each week
– print one copy of the teacher’s guide for yourself
– print one copy of the student pack for each student in your class

If you have any problems with the class, email me at suzyhomeschooler@hotmail.com and I’ll do my best to help.
