CC Cycle 1 Science Resources

This year, we’re studying the natural world, including animal and plant species, geology, weather patterns, and more! These Cycle 1 Science resources can help to make your homeschool environment colorful and creative as you help your kids to interact with the world around them.

Be one the lookout for opportunities in your area like zoos, parks, and museums to make the experience more hands-on and exciting.

These fun coloring pages are fun to encourage exploration and art within Cycle 1 and also serve well as cut-outs for notebook projects. These fun illustrations are easy to color or practice tracing if your kids love to gather their own doodling ideas.

Botanicum + Animalium Poster Books

A creative mama in the Classical Conversations Facebook group had this great idea to frame vintage-looking plant drawings from these books and frame them on their wall. What a beautiful visual to have for art and science integration!

Nature Anatomy – by Julia Rothman

My favorite thing about this book series is how the author integrates arts and science. The illustrations are hand-drawn, which I believe encourages kids to re-create renderings they observe in nature. They are simplified with simple science lessons in storytelling format and encouragement for conservation awareness.

*DISCLAIMER* – the science facts in this book allude to evolutionary theory and the age of the earth being billions of years old. If you are looking for science resources based on Creationism, we have great recommendations in our article: Creation Science Homeschool Curriculum.

Plants of the Bible Art – Scribbling Grace

Jenna Parde, creator of Scribbling Grace has made these sweet and simple watercolor designs of plants mentioned in scripture. Use this during your plant study with the kids, have them find scripture based on each plant, or have them write about how God uses these plants to teach a lesson or point back to His love, grace, and provision. Cycle 1 Science meets Bible study meets art!

Jenna is also a talented Bible cover and journaling illustrator! Check out her custom-made covers and prints at ScribblinGrace.com. Click on the photo below to follow her free watercolor world tutorial!
