Description

Class Experience

Learners will practice observation and narration skills while drawing an animal and listening to a chapter of "The Burgess Animal Book for Children."
I have taught science and agriculture for many years as a high school teacher and now as a homeschool parent. I have always loved nature, but I became more passionate about nature study when I became a certified naturalist. 
No homework is required. However, learners will be encouraged to observe animals and nature throughout the week. An optional copywork page will be available to learners after class. 
REQUIRED: Please bring the following materials to class:
Nature journal (or plain paper for drawing animals)
Pencil
Colored pencils, markers, crayons, or other art supplies to draw animals
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The primary source for this class is "The Burgess Animal Book for Children." Learners are not required to have a copy of this book; however you may read it for free on Project Gutenberg at https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2441. I will also show pictures of animals and sometimes show short videos of animals.
