Rabbit Trails through Science

Rabbit Trails through Science is set up in the same way as the beloved Rabbit Trails through Literature. This time, there are core books that your family will use through out your nature studies, with the same Rabbit Trails that we all love.

This year, Rabbit Trails through Science will be all about BIRDS! We will learn about these amazing creatures by studying what makes them so special, plus about a few species to dig in even deeper.

What Books are a Part of the Curriculum?

Our bird study will be taking place within four books as the foundation of the curriculum. These books will show amazing pictures and information, give a beautiful read aloud option to add into your day, and poetry to finish it all off for copywork or a delightful poetry teatime in your home! You can get all of your books in one convenient location inside of my Amazon Storefront.
