Exploring Floss by Kim Lewis

New out this week, a Picture Book Explorers guide to accompany Flossby Kim Lewis. The story follows Floss from her old life in Newcastle to her new life as a working dog on a sheep farm in Northumberland.

Take the opportunity to learn about British farming methods, sheep and working dogs. Use the suggested activities to enhance your learning with a hands-on science experiment, art, crafts and regional recipes.

Suitable for all kinds of home education styles, from a structured routine approach to a one followed by more autonomous educators who wish to strew new ideas in their children's paths.

Although Picture Book Explorers are written with homeschoolers in mind, this is a fantastic unit to support your school-going child's learning at home. It is especially suitable for the long summer holidays when sheepdog trials can be visited in real life.

Visit Currclick today to get your copy of Picture Book Explorers - Floss


You will also need to borrow or buy your own copy of Floss by Kim Lewis to complete the suggested explorations.

Useful stuff for the crafts and other activities:
