Spring into Outdoor Learning with Homeschooling

Spread the love

As a Christian homeschool parent, you have the unique opportunity to not only educate your children, but also instill in them a love for God’s creation. Spring is the perfect season to take advantage of the great outdoors and incorporate outdoor activities into your homeschooling routine. Not only does this provide a change of scenery and a chance to burn off some energy, but it also allows children to connect with nature and learn from it. Here are five ways that homeschool parents can get spring into outdoor learning! Get creative about doing school lessons outside and taking advantage of the beautiful opportunity to enjoy God’s creation this Spring season.

Nature Walks

Spring is the perfect time to take a nature walk and observe the new life and growth that is happening all around us. You can plan a nature walk with your Spring Nature Journal as part of your science lesson, where you can teach your children about different plants, insects, and animals. Make sure to bring a notebook and a camera to document what you see. You can also use this opportunity to teach your children about the importance of taking care of God’s creation and being good stewards of the earth.

Gardening

Spring is also a great time to start a garden. You can incorporate gardening into your homeschool curriculum by teaching your children about the different types of plants, how they grow, and what they need to survive. You can also use this opportunity to teach your children Biblical lessons that are already illustrated in the Scriptures under the picture of gardening and plants. A fun “bonus benefit” is that not only is gardening a fun and educational activity, but it also provides your family with fresh produce that you can use in your cooking.

Art and Writing

Spring is a great time to get creative with art and writing. You can take your art and writing lessons outside and use nature as inspiration. You can have your children draw or paint the flowers and trees they see, or write poetry about the beauty of nature. You can also have them write a journal about their experiences outside, documenting what they observe and how it makes them feel.

Science Experiments

Spring is a great time to do science experiments outside. You can teach your children about the water cycle by collecting rainwater and observing how it evaporates and condenses. You can also teach them about the life cycle of a butterfly by observing the different stages of metamorphosis. You can also do a bird watching activity, where you observe different birds and teach your children about their habitats and behaviors. Can you think of more examples to add to that list? 

Field Trips

Spring is the perfect season for field trips. You can plan a trip to a local park, nature reserve, or farm. You could also visit a botanical garden or a zoo to learn about different plants and animals. Or you can plan a camping trip, where you can teach your children about survival skills and how to be good stewards of God’s Creation.

In conclusion, homeschooling provides a unique opportunity to educate your children while also instilling in them a love for the Lord’s creation. And this is the perfect season of the year to take advantage of the great outdoors and spring into outdoor learning in your homeschooling routine. By taking nature walks, gardening, getting creative with art and writing, doing science experiments, and going on field trips, you can teach your children about the beauty and importance of God’s work in nature, while also making learning fun and engaging. Remember to take the time to appreciate the wonders of the Lord’s handiwork, and teach your children to do the same! 

All for our King’s glory,
