Do a No-Sweat Nature Study on Caves
My friend Cindy West of Our Journey Westward has an amazing membership called No Sweat Nature Study that my elementary kids adore! Twice a month she teaches a science lesson live where kids learn about a new nature topic such as squirrels, seed dispersion, the water cycle, or caves!
If you’re seeing this before Tuesday, 6/16/20 afternoon, you can sign up to see the cave lesson live. But, they’re always recorded for future viewing as well.
