Okay. This is a BIG deal. We think it is our biggest news this spring. This new Curriculum is gorgeous, inspired, and absolutely indispensable. Many of you may have purchased or downloaded the early version of this Curriculum already and might know it by one of its previous names:
Intro to Biomes Curriculum or World According to Biomes Curriculum.
The Curriculum has always been a Waseca flagship material. It includes: the Introductory Biome Cards and Nomenclature Cards for Parts of a Biome, Layers of the Soil, Carbon and Nitrogen cycles, Hemispheres, and Parts of Vertebrates and Plants.
The nomenclature has not changed, but the Guide Book is SO MUCH improved!
The updated Curriculum comes in at 200 pages (three times as big as the previous version). We have included more lessons and restructured the order of presentation to integrate the Montessori Cultural Curriculum.
The result is a guide:
That begins with the beginning : the birth of the Universe.
Incorporates cosmic education and the exploration of Earth in the context of our solar system.
Introduces life on our planets and the elements that support it
Brings in the concept of biomes as a context for exploring life on our planet.
Explores continents through their biomes and inhabitants (animals and people).
If you have already purchased the Introduction to Biomes set, we encourage you to purchase the new curriculum guide as an update.
