I just finished my new e-Book, The Gentle Art of Observation. This 142-page book focuses on using nature study, both indoors and outside, to teach students of all ages how to look closely and ask good questions about what they observe. The book includes detailed directions for seven separate learning tasks, including “Adopt-a-Plant,” “One Small Square,” and “The Nature Center,” as well as over 20 reproducibles for use in homeschool or classroom science studies. For  elementary grade teachers building a science curriculum, the book provides a materials list with suggested items, including texts, for supporting the topic of observation in the classroom.

The Gentle Art of Observation, by Kim M. Bennett/Simple Science Strategies (2012). $8.95
