Harbor and Sprout

DIGITAL Botany Primary Level Unit Study


Welcome to the wonderful world of botany! This unit study is designed to guide learners aged 6-12 on an in-depth exploration that will not only provide a thorough study of the subject at hand, but will also involve students in the process through immersive, experiential learning opportunities. Consistent, gentle, and easy-to-follow structure encourages internalization and personal connection with each module.

Be sure to add the Botany Primary Level Workbook, available in both digital PDF and physical print formats! These workbooks are not required to complete the unit study; however, they add enriching dimension to the learning experience.

This unit study will be delivered digitally and may be used ebook-style or printed alongside a notebook of your own choosing or with the Harbor + Sprout Primary Companion Notebook, available in both digital PDF or physical print format. You can purchase a physical print copy of this unit study here. Primary Level Unit Studies are open-and-go and non-consumable, meaning that you will not need to write on or cut anything out of the pages.  Optional printable notebooking pages are provided. This unit study is intended for elementary learners ages 6-12. 

This unit study includes 21 modules. Each module is made up of 3 parts:

  1. Information: This is the reading portion of the module. The reading can be completed independently or with help from an adult. You may take one day or more to complete the reading.
  2. Notebooking Prompts: In the notebooking section of each module, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your reading in a way that is unique to you. 
  3. Activities: Each module contains a selection of activities and hands-on learning experiences to choose from. These activities span the range of learning styles and are meant to be completed at whatever pace feels most comfortable to you.
