Explore the Worlds Beyond The Backyard - Fun-Schooling Science Bundle
Homeschool science curriculum can be hard to choose! This bundle will delight students who love science and the outdoors. Students who have previously struggled with science can approach it in a fun and non-threatening way. Add in your chosen history curriculum to cover all the basic subjects with a science focus.
Use daily and complete in a year. This would be an especially great option if you’re working on high school credits. Younger students may want to spread out the journals to make them last several years.
12 Months in the Forest: Students will learn how forest life changes every month by studying animals, plants, weather, clouds, seasons, and so much more!

Scheduling this Bundle-
Below are a few options for scheduling your Fun-Schooling day. There is no “wrong” way to use Fun-Schooling Journals. Be creative! Please reach out if you need help with planning/scheduling.
We recommend the same number of pages per day as a child’s age across all Fun-Schooling journals. An 8-year-old would work on 8 pages/day, a 14-year-old would work on 14 pages/day. One page is a single side of the paper- not both.
Option 1- Pure loop. Stick everything in a pile. Let your child decide how many pages to complete in each journal as they work through the stack. After they finish with a journal, it goes to the bottom of the pile. This is the most child-led and relaxed method.
Option 2- Half the pages per day from one journal and half from another, completing two journals per day.
Option 3- Theme days. For example, Monday Core Journal. Tuesday, Language Arts. Wednesday, Geography- etc.
Option 4- Half pages from a core journal, the rest from one single subject journal.
Option 5- Work in-depth on one journal and complete it thoroughly, then move on to the following journal. Most journals will last six-twelve weeks with this method.
