I'm currently spending some time on this, since I'm planning on using these books with my younger daughter. Although these are placed in Year Three, I'm sure that many of you will find that they will work just as well for students who are slightly older as well. I would suggest that this study be used with ages 8-11, using extensions for ages 10-11. I'm going to add The Sea Around Us by Rachel Carson to our study of Tide Pools to further advance the work for my rising 6th grader and to fill in the study more and make it a more complete marine biology study. I'm adding a link here for a rough draft of the scope and sequence for Year Three Science and Nature Study to give you a quick peek at what this will cover. I reserve the right to make changes and adjustments as I go along...:) I have completed the notes for Pagoo and Life in the Tidal Pool and will begin typing them soon. Once I add the labs, this section will be complete. I wrote out a rough schedule to be sure that all that I wanted to cover in this year would fit. Nature Study will revolve around the topic of tracks, scats and signs.
Y3 Science and Nature Study- Scope and Sequence Rough Draft
ETA: Here is the guide for Tide Pool Life. I do still need to write the 6 Science Investigations and any teaching notes and supplemental pages. I'll add those in very soon, because this study starts off with two Science Investigations and I will need them too.
I recently added in chapters 4-8 and will be working on adding more this month.
ETA: currently working on this...added 7-8
I have been working on Year One lately and hope to add Term Two C soon. I try to set goals for myself, but life gets in the way sometimes. :)
ETA: I have added Term 2 C and now Term 2 is complete as well. This means that Weeks 1-24 are available. While I don't have Semester Two listed, Weeks 19-24 can be found under Term 2 B and Term 2 C.
