This time of year is perfect for jumping into a study of Botany. There are only a few homeschool botany curriculum programs on the market, but there is at least something for every grade and budget. Personally, I love Great Science Adventures for Elementary. It isn’t a full year program, but it is perfect for a couple month long study in the spring or summer!
If you have older kids, or want a full year study, many people swear by Apologia science. I haven’t personally used the botany book, but I have heard good things about it if you are looking for Christian-based science. If you need a secular program, Ellen McHenry isn’t as long of a course, but it is very complete.
