When you hear the word forest, you probably think about the tall trees that live there. But forests are also teaming with smaller plants and fungi. This packet helps students learn to identify these different organisms and provides photographs and illustrations of some plants and mushrooms commonly found on the east coast (USA).

This 60-page Nature Studies Packet starts with a discussion of the plant, animal and fungi kingdoms. Students will find out why fungi are actually more closely related to animals than plants!

Walking around a forest, you will find many different types of plants including mosses, ferns and different flowering plants such as shrubs, vines, brambles and ground cover. These notebook pages introduce student to some common vocabulary regarding fungi and plants.

Biology BUNDLE, for late elementary & middle school

We (I have 3 kids, each 2 years apart) started covering biology topics such as the organelles of the cell and basic botany (parts of a seed/flower, carnivorous plants) in elementary. We would usually do one or two biology units each year. We would come back to that topic every couple of years and go into more depth. Each time we covered a unit, I added in new materials to our packets, so our units are great for homeschooling families with kids of different ages. We even used of this material for biology in high school.

Big Animal BUNDLE, for early elementary

My kids loved studying animals. We did a lot of activities over the years (and I kept adding to the packets I created. For example, the Animal Packet covers basic animal classification, animal characteristics, body coverings: feathers, fur, scales or skin, vertebrate groups, invertebrate groups, domesticated vs. wild animals, animals and their tracks, nocturnal vs diurnal animals, animal homes and shelters and more!

The Big Animal BUNDLE includes 11 packets.   1) Animal Unit, 2) World Animals Packet, 3) Rainforest Packet, 4) Life Cycles Packet, 5) Winter Packet – plus several mini units 6) the Cicadas Packet and 7) the Chameleon Packet. 8) the Wolves Mini-Unit 9) Australia Unit 10) Dinosaur Unit 11) Mittens Unit (These packets are also sold separately!)

Big Animal Bundle Units

Chemistry Bundle

This chemistry page will tell you more about each of these units. Again, we covered a chemistry topic most every year, reviewing many of these topics every couple of years (and/or going into more depth each time). We did most of these units in upper elementary and middle school (though I think my youngest was in early elementary when we did the states of matter unit).

Chemistry BUNDLE Packets

Human Body BUNDLE 

Each year we would study a new human body system. Some of the units we covered included the skeletal system, muscular system, digestive system, circulatory system, nervous system, endocrine system and more!  I have three kids, each two years apart.  We would do our units together so we often did a lot of hands-on activities (for my youngest). We did these units again a few years later and would go into more depth as my kids got older (and then I would update and add to the packet). For that reason, our human body system materials is great for homeschooling families and can be used with a range of ages. System Unit - Worksheets Lapbook Activities and More
