Welcome To Adventure Hollow
A Nature Program For Nurturing Young Minds To Become Strong Adults.
Adventure Hollow is a nature based enrichment program for homeschoolers in kindergarten through seventh grade. Our hope is to cultivate an organic love for learning through hands on experiences in nature, literature and art.
Botany and Entomology
In our Botany and Entomology class we will be studying the biology of plants, fungi and other organisms, such as lichens and algae while focusing on local examples. While exploring entomology, we’ll observe and discuss insects and their relationship to humans, the environment, and other organisms. We’ll look at the role of insects in the spread of disease and discovering ways of protecting food and fiber crops, and livestock from being damaged. In addition we will examine the way beneficial insects contribute to the well being of humans, animals, and plants.
Cultural Study (Language Arts)
Our language arts class will focus on seven countries from around the world representing each continent. Through history, culturally significant events, language and food we will learn about China, Morocco, Romania, Botswana, Iceland, Chili and Tahiti. We will experience the smells, sounds and taste of each unique part of the world. Each unit study will include a celebration of an important holiday and will feature food, poetry, short stories, and folklore from each country. By the end of the year we will understand a bit more about the people and landscape of the world abroad.
Art Throughout the World
Our Art class will compliment our Cultural Studies class as we study the art from each of the countries we are exploring. We will look at the history of art from each of our chosen countries and we will study a significant artist from that part of the world. Our students will then learn about one or two specific art forms popular in that part of the world and will learn how to work the different mediums to create their own art in that style. At the end of the school year they will have an appreciation for the art and culture of each country representing each continent.
Marine Biology (8-10th grade)
In this high school credit, marine biology class, we will dive into the life and balance of the marine world from a creation-based viewpoint. We will work though activities and have discussions with the hope of a deeper understanding of the ocean and our role in its stewardship.
We will use Apologia’a Exploring Creation with Marine Biology book and student notebook. Instructor Nikki Farmer ~ theoceanfarmer.com
