Tell us a little about yourself. I have bright red hair, green eyes, used to be 5'6" before all the babies, adore my husband, and am an early morning person. My alarm rings at 3:30 am for my quiet time, then I write, sew, paint, or plan school!
What was your motivation behind this project? I was frustrated at not finding a unit study on plants that incorporated the hands-on with the scientific, while learning to identify plants and know their anatomical makeup. To teach microscopic knowledge along with the study of life cycles, physical characteristics and the scientific method. Wanting to teach our children all about plants, I wrote this unit to cover most of the angles, point to the right questions, and provide the labs to bring the answers. It was a labor of love for our children and the homeschool community - to give back for all the support I've received in our homeschooling career.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope we've done most of the work for you, and you can relax and enjoy learning with the children. I hope children will get excited about plants, microscopically and in nature. To enjoy learning and working on labs that teach.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love Tasha Tudor and her lifestyle. I like unit studies because the children remember what they learned so much better and longer.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The Botany Unit is complete and REVISED! The 2nd Edition (2002) has 18 new labs, with 42 pages of lab sheets included in the 190+ page course. There are more flashcards, more labs and lab sheets, and Answer Keys included.
