The Wonders of the Animal Kingdom

The Kratt Brothers have invaded my house! If you're not familiar with them yet, they are two brothers who believe they are creature teachers. Truly, this show has opened up a floodgate of curiosity about animals with the kids. Why not learn more about the wonders of animals this year for science? As a spine we'll be using the Childcraft About Animals Book. This book is not dry as most encyclopedias tend to be, but instead is written in a conversational manner geared for kids. It is quite a gem in my own opinion. Along with the animals book, we'll round out our studies using other books to further our study. I've included a document that individually lists each book. And lastly, we'll create a simple notebook using various lapbook components from Homeschool Share.
