Forestry Primary Level Unit Study


Welcome to the forest! This unit study is designed to guide learners aged 6-12 on an in-depth Forestry 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.

Primary level unit studies are delivered digitally and may be used ebook-style alongside a notebook of your own choosing, or you may print the unit and use it in hard copy form. The unit is 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 20 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.
