Botany Materials

Fall is such a natural time to study botany!  We tend to focus on leaves and trees in the fall and then more on seeds and flowers in the spring.  Of course there is always some overlap, but that's kind of our rough plan.  We have been working more with the Tree of Life this year and just finished a review of the Animal Kingdom and are moving into the Plant Kingdom now.  These are our materials for the study of botany.  This is also roughly the order I present everything in (with the exception of the poem and books at the bottom, that is throughout).

We use the library a lot for all of our science work, I have 3-5 books on most topics that I really like, but then we gather more specific books as they become relevant.  The truth is, this is only a small portion of what materials would be traditionally available for all the way from birth through 12, but it feels like enough for me right now.  There are some botany charts and things that I may start to work on, but right now I'm still working on my geography charts and I can't do both!
