Nature Studies:  Discover the Wonder of Creation



A love of science starts with a sense of wonder. Help your children see the world with new eyes. “If the trees and flowers, the clouds and the wind, all tell wonderful stories to the child, he has sources of happiness of which no power can deprive him.”


-From Well Educated Heart

A heart based science program begins with Nature Studies for young children.

We love the stories on the Well Educated Heart site!  These wonderful stories in combination with exploring our beautiful world provide a strong science foundation for children to build upon.


The following resources provide great instruction for creating a Nature Study program for your children.

Beginning at age 8, we encourage children to begin a more systematic approach to science using Science in the Beginning from Berean Builders.  Families may continue to enjoy the stories from the Nature, Art and Music Series while participating in the science experiments from Science in the Beginning.
