“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” – misattributed to William Butler Yeats

bucket spillWe’re doing homeschool science this year – 9th-grade biology – with Susanna and several other families. This page lists posts related to our nature study approach to biology this year. 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.
