A Charlotte Mason style science curriculum for upper elementary and junior high students.

This long-time favorite story about a group of siblings in England who find an old book written by "the Queen's own gardener" in the attic and set out to replicate it has now been turned into a one-year curriculum for upper elementary and junior high students!

180 daily lessons include weekly stories with activities such as nature sketching, researching, writing, hands-on activities, and more, and will teach your student all about planning and design a garden, planting and saving seeds, tubers, bulbs, etc. Learn how to graft trees, make and use a cold frame, compost, start and maintain a worm colony, dry and use herbs, press flowers, and more. Find out which creatures frequent gardens, and whether they are beneficial or harmful - and why. What is the difference between medicinal herbs and culinary herbs? What is an apothecary? An herbalist? Why do plants have Latin names, and how do those names help us classify them?

All this and much more will give your student a well-rounded, enjoyable year of variety as he studies God's wonderful world of plants and animals. No garden space is required and all hands-on activities may be done indoors.
