Welcome to Curious Trails

Our Curious Trails: Family Literature and Activity Guides are inspired by living books that invite us to explore worlds of nature, geography, art, history, and science. We’ll chase our curiosities and travel wherever our stories lead us! Throughout each unit you’ll find open-and-go topic study guides and lots of hands-on-activities to celebrate what we’ve learned ranging from S.T.E.M. projects, art invitations, nature journaling, cooking science, and more! You’ll also find our “Literacy Look” language activities following Charlotte Mason’s principles of narration, gentle grammar play, and creative writing projects.

Join us as we go on the ‘sweetest’ adventure inspired by readings of Kirsten Hall’s The Honeybee and Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse. We’ll get up close with some amazing bee species and learn what life is like in a bee colony. Our read alouds will have us playing with onomatopoeia sound words, dialogue, and ‘point-of-view’ as we narrate our stories from a ‘buzzing’ new perspective. Our younger learners will also enjoy bee themed Letter B, Sight Word, and Word Family activities. This guide is full of STEM projects, art invitations, handicrafts, nature math, and journaling activities!
