This colorful worktext combines guided Nature Walks, bite-sized science facts, engaging video clips, nature read-alouds, and coloring pages into a foundational science program that holds a child’s interest as he explores the wonders of God’s creation.
Nature Walks: Guided Nature Walks provide the hands-on encounter with God’s creation that is so essential at this age level. Twenty-four unique “Nature Walk Take-Along Sheets” are included in the worktext to encourage observation and prompt discovery. Although some of the objects/creatures might not be found in your area, each sheet also includes items that can be located anywhere, such as rocks, leaves, and twigs. Behold and See K includes a section of Rainy Day Activities for times when you can’t go on a Nature Walk.
Science Facts: Each week’s “Creature Feature” or “Nature Feature” introduces the anatomy and behavior of a different animal or plant. Then on the following page, the child learns about creatures that share characteristics with the “featured creature.” In this way, the young scientist not only learns about various plants and animals, but is also exposed to scientific methods of categorization (by habitat, by anatomical structure, by eating habits, and so on).
Creature Clips: Engaging video clips that demonstrate or expand upon the science facts are recommended for almost every lesson.
Nature Read-Alouds: A list of fiction and non-fiction books is provided in Behold and See K. The list is organized by unit and week to make it easy to check out read-aloud titles from the library that are related to the nature topic of the week.
