- Doing copywork (secular) from the books you’re reading

- Going on forest walks for hands on experience
- Nature journaling

What do I need for this study?
Can I see Samples?
- Teacher Guide Introduction
- Week 2 Forest Study Sample
- Level 1 Student Page Sample
- Level 2 Student Pages Sample
What ages is this unit for?
Is this truly Secular?
Is it Christian friendly?
Do I need to live close to a forest?
Do you need ALL the books?
You definitely don’t need all of them, I would highly recommend using the the first 4 in the list below. The forest school is optional, and you can enjoy nature journaling without a nature journal instruction book. I offer tips every week regardless of whether you use those pages.
