I’ve been sorting through my older children’s homeschooling work and came across nature notebooks belonging to two of them, so I thought I’d share some of what we’ve done with various notebooks over the past 15 years. Two of the boys aren’t represented here – I still haven’t finished my sorting out yet.
The pages below are from my eldest daughter, JJ’s nature notebook when she was between 10 and 12 years of age. She’s 25 years old now.
These pages are from Zana’s Nature notebook when she was 10 years old. She turned 21 years of age earlier this year.
Below is a page from Hoggy’s science notebook when he was about 15 after reading about Galileo. He turned 19 years of age a couple of months ago. On the right is a psalm from his Scripture Notebook. They started keeping these for recording the verses they’d memorised. He was about 7 years old when he did this page.
Poetry & hymn notebooks (above) – they wrote out their poems as we were memorising them and also some of the hymns we learnt. These were done when Hoggy was about 13 years old.
And finally, some nature pages from Moozle, the youngest. The first one was done last year after she’d pressed some flowers. They were a little mangled in the process but I think they turned out fairly well. The second was one she did this month.
