Botany In A Home School Co-op
Our text for the co-op will be Exploring Creation with Botany by Jeannie Fulbright. We won’t be using this text as written but will be picking and choosing activities and sections of text to read from it.
Our Co-op has many different age levels and abilities. The children who attend and actually participate are from ages 2-19. We meet for 3 hours each week.
Why not use the entire text?
We only have from January 25th through June 14th, not enough time to work through the entire book. Maybe next year we can do a more thorough study but this year we are focusing on a few topics and experiments of interest and adding in a few projects I have done in the past that I just love to do.
About 7 years ago our family worked our way through this Botany text and enjoyed it very much. Using it as the backbone to our co-op classes seemed appropriate.
Which sections did I decide to use?
