Patience is a virtue that must be developed to be a botanist.† The nature of many of the projects in this book require patience. Your child will grow an herb and use it.† He will also grow squash and pollinate them by hand.† He will make a field guide of his own and measure the height of tall trees, discover frond art, learn the discipline of keeping a nature journal, and many other activities.† Four lab supply kits are available for this book from Creation Sensation - a Deluxe Family Kit, a 2nd Student Kit, a Priority Kit (less expensive, but you have to find some of the items yourself) and custom built co-op kits for groups.
Exploring Creation with Botany is a book which can best be used in a co-op that is meeting for an extended sesson, preferably for the entire school year.† Although many of the projects are observational they lend themselves very well to group setting.† Schedule as many meetings outside as possible.† Be sure and schedule a field trip to a nursery and to a woodland garden. Schedule a speaker from The Master Gardeners for one of the classes.† For a closing celebration, arrange the planting of a community garden at a park or a zoo and enjoy a picnic when the work is finished.

Comments: Jeannie writes in such an engaging style. My children and I are currently studying botany together and really enjoying it.
