Please note that there is an additional shipping and handling fee for the caterpillars and food. Watch the caterpillar morph into chrysalises, then beautiful Painted Lady butterflies to keep in your butterfly habitat. Enough nutrient is included in the container for the caterpillars as they mature into butterflies, and after that you feed them with the aid of your butterfly feeding kit. When they're full grown, set them free! The sides of the butterfly garden habitat are made out of a see-through and breathable mesh for easy viewing. There is also a hook-and-loop fastener strap on top which will allow you to hang it from the ceiling or in front of a window (it also allows you to fold the habitat flat when not in use.

It is also made out of a see-through mesh, it “pops up” to stand on its own, and it can be folded flat using the hook-and-loop fastener straps that are attached to the top of the habitat (these can also be used to hang the butterfly pavilion).  This kit comes with a voucher for five Painted Lady caterpillars and food for them as well. Simply redeem your voucher online at InsectLore.com (additional shipping and handling fee is required when you redeem your voucher) and your caterpillars will be delivered to your front door. Detailed instructions, a pipette for butterfly feeding and Painted Lady butterfly Life Cycle Stages Figures are also included in the kit.  Please note that caterpillars can only be shipped during mild weather and within the continental US and Alaska.

    Neither intensive nor too informal, this curriculum strikes an excellent balance in beginning instruction. Lessons focus on reading skills, but also incorporate math, science, Bible, art, character development, creative thinking and childrens literature. There are 26 thematic units total, with each unit taking five days to complete. Daily lessons will take 60-90 minutes.

    Beginning reading lessons are systematic and thorough, using tactile, visual and auditory methods to teach children letters and letter sounds. The corresponding letter flashcards are beautifully illustrated with animals and other items from Gods creation. Letters are not introduced in alphabetical order, but in an order to facilitate early blending into words (for early reinforcement of phonetic skills) and to correspond with elements of creation. (For example, S is introduced first along with a science lesson about the Sun. Students also construct a sundial, make raisins, paint a sun and see how, like the sun, Jesus is the light of the world.) Textured letters are integral to the lessons (see below), as are the flashcards. Handwriting is also incorporated as are various games, songs, drawing, cut & paste, and other reinforcing activities. By lesson 6, children begin blending letter sounds into simple words. By the end, they'll be reading simple stories. Each unit also has a recommended children's literature title. Math concepts include counting, writing numerals, charts and graphs, sequencing, comparing, classifying, ordinal numbers, fractions (whole and half), time, money, and simple addition/subtraction. Science topics match the illustrations on the alphabet flashcards and consist of objects that can be observed in nature.

    The Limited Ed. Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student sheets; alphabet flashcards, Lauri lower-case alphabet puzzle; What Really Happened to the Dinosuars?; For the Children's Sake; Cuisenaire Rods; Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book; Say Hello to Classical Music; an inflatable globe and the MFW Kindergarten Literature Collection with 26 stories to be used with the units. Ant Hill and Butterfly Garden kits are not included in the kits but highly recommended for customers in the 48 states. Both insect kits are also available from us separately.

    Imagine an antique science book with anatomical images of plants and animals that are beautiful to look at, but in this case, you can color them too! The ivory vellum paper is frame worthy & printed on one side with a dark gray ink. Half of the book is botanical prints, many with the common name & Latin name at the bottom (honeysuckle, lemon, garden peas, etc), while the rest are of sea life, birds and insects (coral, butterflies, etc.) Colored pencils would be lovely on the perforated pages. 8.5x10”.

    For many of us, nature studies have extended beyond the exploratory lessons and have become an extension of our lives. Immersing ourselves in nature fills us with a greater appreciation for our created world-the perfect balance in which every living plant, organism and creature intertwines.

    Designed for nature enthusiasts, this practical book provides month by month projects for the entire family. Each chapter begins with a region by region check list which corresponds to the USDA plant hardiness zone map (included for those of us who may be unsure of the zone in which we reside). Each month provides a wide range of projects and wildlife activities which allows you to pick and choose those that best fit your family. Instructions for projects are given clearly in a step by step format and many key steps are illustrated. A sampling of projects includes: building a bat box; making a mini-pond; building a simple toad sanctuary; building a butterfly hibernation box, plus many others. Abundant beneficial charts are included, for example: identifying bird eggs by nest position and color/dimensions of egg; identifying spider webs; and directories of wildlife plants/shrubs for gardens. The most exciting aspect of this activity-based book is that you do not have to have access to acres of land. Your own personal wildlife preserve is achievable whether you measure your yard in acres or feet. Nearly all the projects contained in this book are small scale and require only a few feet or yards of land. Beautifully illustrated, this book will please the discerning nature lover in all of us. 160 pgs, pb. ~Deanne
