My faith is very important to me and as stated by Ann E. McGovern, “I believe the aim of Nature Study is twofold: First to cultivate the higher nature of the child and lead him toward his Creator; and secondly to develop his intellectual powers and lead him to acquire a knowledge of his physical environment.” Because of this, you will find quotes about nature that point to the Creator, recommended hymns and Scripture memory, and poetry selections or poetry questions that are faith-based.
The nature study and journal pages are, however, mainly observational in nature. Each day you will find something to look for or something to do in nature with links to articles or videos to learn more. These links will be to the articles I found most useful or most interesting relating to the subject.
So can you use the nature study in a neutral or secular way? Very easily, but if any religious content bothers you, it’s probably not the right option for you.
