I have a 7, 5, 3 and 6 mos old currently “in school” and we are truly enjoying Outdoor Secrets. It is absolutely darling! So whimsical, yet very educational. It is such a wonderful example of what a living book is! We started with Lesson 9, the Uninvited Guest. We are learning about earthworms. Our compost is currently thriving with earthworms, it was just perfect! Anybody here do the glass jar and earthworms project and can share your experience? Thanks!Tamara BellModerator
I haven’t used this guide yet. My older kids are 12 and 13. My next round of kiddos are 3 and 5. I’ve been excited to start with them but am forcing myself to wait a bit longer (like another year or 2…ack!) lol. Thank you SO much for confirming what a great science guide this is.ReganParticipant
I am just now seeing this post, but will comment for the benefit of anyone who comes behind and read it. We did the glass jar earth worm project and it worked beautifully. We also had a compost pile and a plethora of worms. We followed the directions and could see the tunnels they were digging. We enjoyed watching them for a day or two and then released them. 🙂JanaeCunninghamParticipant
We bought an earthworm farm on Amazon (https://smile.amazon.com/Kids-Worm-Observation-SHIPPED-Worms/dp/B00I0AJ044/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=earthworm+farm&qid=1553543334&s=gateway&sr=8-1). We LOVED it! After reading the book recommended about the life of an earthworm, my young daughter noticed worm castings in our backyard. Soon the entire family was searching, and we discovered that our yard was covered with them. Before Charlotte Mason, I never saw myself being enthralled with worm poop. 🙂
