In the first unit, instead of the perennial lesson on “the scientific method,” we’re having a conversation on living books, nature walks, nature journaling, and what makes education meaningful. In ten years, will the kids’ memories of Biology 101 be only a bucket of spilled milk? We hope for something different.
