While planning an in-depth study of Botany for the coming year, I was looking around for some supplementary activities. Being the
cheapskate thrifty homeschooling mom that I am, I looked local first.
The state conservation departments are great champions of outdoor education opportunities, and the Missouri Department of Conservation is no exception. Their Conservation Frontiers program is a welcome (and FREE!) addition to any size classroom.
Activities can be tailored to your area, and some can be repeated for credit – points that can be turned in to the Dept. of Conservation for prizes!
The packet has a manual full of project and field trip ideas that jump start kids to making their own binders that they can add to throughout the year or two that you want to run the program.
There’s just one problem… I like pre-made activity sheets that I can give to my kids so they can be more self-directed, stay organized, and make my grading and record-keeping easier.
So, to help us both out, I’ve created a few pages based on some of our favorite activities from the Frontiers guidebook.
