The Curriculum of the Steiner School - Class 2

Notes and Lesson Plans

Nature Study - April
updated April 25, 2022

Recorded here is my own personal collection of articles, resources, favorite links, teaching ideas, and lesson plans. It encompasses many years, from the very beginning of my experience studying and learning about Waldorf to the present time. People from all around the world visit my site and recommend it to others. Welcome!

This site records my journey. I hope my honesty is encouraging and helps break down some barriers that may prevent people from trying Waldorf methods. Because this is an ongoing site documenting my curriculum planning and ideas, some materials are more Waldorf-y than others. Please feel free to take what you like and leave the rest.

Nature Study
for Bridge and Class 1/2

*NEW* Yard Sign for No Mow May (PDF)

This is a continuation of my Nature Study page, with specific notes for April.

As a Bridge curriculum or for Nature study in grades 1 & 2, I recommend the Charlotte Mason-inspired Exploring Nature with Children curriculum. It is a downloadable PDF which you can choose to print or not, and the cost is just $18.00. An optional companion book is Anna Botsford Comstock's Handbook of Nature Study, which is also useful for multiple years.
