Practical Homescholing Award for Science 2020

What an honor again to be in the top spot for the Practical Homeschooling Magazine Awards for 2020! I can’t tell you how much this means to me to receive this award for being a top elementary school science curriculum. I write about things I love and am passionate about. To know that the families who use my plans love them too keeps me motivated to go on creating the best homeschool nature study site on the web!


I’ve been writing the Outdoor Hour Challenge since 2008. The list of topics covered with the weekly nature study lessons and ideas has grown to be a complete library of resources for families to use no matter the weather and no matter the environment.

It makes my heart soar to know that homeschooling families feel my program has enriched their lives and given them a solid science curriculum to use as a means of learning about nature together.

Thank you to all of you who voted and those that have supported this worldwide community of nature-loving families throughout the past decade.

The 2020 Practical Homeschooling® Reader Awards™ will be announced in the Summer 2020 issue of Practical Homeschooling magazine. The Reader Awards have been a regular feature in the magazine since 1998. Thousands of homeschoolers rank the curriculum they have used, and the products with the highest satisfaction ratings win.
