    You hear a lot in education circles about “integrated learning.” That’s “education speak” for how students make connections by studying something across multiple curriculum subjects. Or what we homeschoolers like to call “real life.” And learning doesn’t get much more integrated than when you bring along some paper and a pencil while walking in the great outdoors.Let’s take a look at some of the incredible things secular homeschoolers can accomplish by nature journaling.
