What is The Earth*School Curriculum?
A nature and seasons based curriculum for young children and their parents. It is specially designed for homeschooling families, and can be used with one child or many children. The activities in the Earth*School curriculum are suited for a wide range of ages. Young toddlers will enjoy the art activities right along side their older siblings. The recommended stories can be shared with toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners, but are also great for cuddling up and reading aloud to your older child. The cooking activities will readily be enjoyed by all members of your family, regardless of age! The Earth*School Curriculum is divided up by activity type. It includes original songs and movement activities, set to familiar tunes. Other areas included in each unit are science, math, language, nature table crafts, creative art, recommended books and places to go and people to see. There are six original activities to be found for each area.
