Free Nature Studies: Introduction {Free eBooks}

Welcome to our free nature studies based on the book Our Wonderful World by Emery Lewis Howe covering pets, birds, plants, animals, and the earth and planets.

Written for young children, this treasure includes experiments, related Scripture verses, and activities such as drawing, narrating, and writing. We’ve added suggestions, helps for Mom, book recommendations, and dozens and dozens of resources to round out the studies.

There are 32 lessons, not including this introduction. By adding a weekly lab and an age-appropriate biology text, you should have enough material for most students.

For the youngest children, simply reading the book together may be enough. You know your children best, but don’t overwhelm them. Have fun!
