I am so thankful for the flexibility and freedom that homeschooling allows. We have great homeschooling laws where we live and can choose what science curriculum to use in our homeschool.
I took advantage of this when my oldest was in high school. We did biology, a full year of astronomy and a year of anatomy & forensic science. We both knew she wasn’t going into a field that would require chemistry or physics and I am not afraid to admit I was fearful of teaching those subjects.
My youngest, who is headed into fifth grade, has shown a passion for meteorology. In her spare time she researches about storms and natural disasters. During her first time using Adventure Academy, she went to the weather section in the science category and learned about avalanches and more about tornadoes – she was extremely fascinated.
If she became a meteorologist or storm chaser I would not be the least bit surprised!
I thought it was a great idea to allow her to pour her passion into learning about a unique topic in science – weather. But not just using a weather unit or a short study – a full year of science, so I started searching for something that was meaty enough to be used for a full year.
That’s when I found the Intro to Meteorology & Astronomy. There was just one problem – my daughter wanted to focus on WEATHER and had no interest in astronomy as of yet. That would leave me with a semester, maybe.
I ordered The New Weather Book, because, if anything, I new she would treasure it. The book is fabulous. It’s a large, hardback, full-color book covering everything you would need to know for a basic overview of weather, natural disasters, and meteorology, all from a biblical worldview.
True to our homeschooling style, I was imagining this would be a perfect companion for a notebooking journal. There is so much info covered and with many researching opportunities, I knew I could stretch it out for a full school year.
With permission from the publisher I have recently launched the Weather Student Notebook – A Meteorological Notebooking Adventure. We will be using this notebooking journal alongside The New Weather Book for a full year of science.
Students will use a combination of written narration, copywork, drawing and labeling alongside the book to learn all about weather, natural disasters, and meteorology.
This download is 188 pages and includes links to free instant downloads to further your study of weather and natural disasters. It took A LOT of work, but we decided to make it available to you for a low price of $9.95,
