When I wrote about our kids' current elementary homeschool curriculum I mentioned the fantastic program called Herb Fairies that Brienne is using for her science studies. (This is not a science "program" but it fits the bill in our house for exploring nature during the elementary years.)
Herb Fairies is a learning resource produced by LearningHerbs.com. The product was available for a limited time last summer, at which time I snagged it for Brienne. It will be available for purchase again next month.
Brienne really enjoyed the stories, learning how to identify plants, and how to make herbal remedies. The pairing of a fairy with a particular plant is genius if you ask me.
The folks at LearningHerbs.com are running a video contest right now. No doubt, to generate some buzz around the upcoming release.
When Brienne found out about this contest she was very keen to produce a video. Video Production 101 (we use iMovie on my Mac) has been her homeschool curriculum for the last couple weeks. Herb Fairies has really facilitated a lot of learning around here. I love that. (pst. This is what interest-led, project-based learning looks like in our home.)
Brienne would be thrilled if you would "Like" her video on the Learning Herbs facebook page. This contest is over now.
Here's a little message written by her, about Herb Fairies and the video contest.
I made a video for a contest. The video is talking about Herb Fairies. Herb Fairies is a series of 13 books where you learn about different plants and herbs along with a fairy. I made a video about Herb Fairies for a contest by the company that publishes Herb Fairies.
The person who gets the most likes on their video has a chance of winning an iPad mini.
I was wondering if you could go to this site, find my video and "like" it.
The winner will be chosen by the 19th so if you're going to "like" my video it needs to be done by then.
You can also tell your friends I made a video so they could like it to, so I could have more chances of winning.
