If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. ~ Adlai Stevenson

Homemade Zoology Studies...

I am using Science Explorer: Animals as a "spine" text for this study, but needed to "bulk it up". So here is what we are supplementing it with!

Main Texts
Animals in Order series
Animal Classification series
Scientists in the Field series

Supplemental Texts/Hands-On
The World in a Drop of Water
Life in a Bucket of Soil
A Child's Story of the Animal World (which is beautifully written and chock-full of great information!)
101 Great Nature Experiments
Janice VanCleave's Biology for Every Kid
The Amateur Zoologist
We also have two microscopes, some owl pellets, dissection kits and specimens, etc.

Main Documentaries
I am sure there will be others!
Life in the Undergrowth
Blue Planet
The Life of Birds
Life in Cold Blood
Life in the Freezer
The Life of Mammals
