Fun-Schooling with Reptiles & Amphibians Research Challenge

Fun-Schooling with Reptiles & Amphibians Research Challenge

Hi all,

Based on the last blog post "Something to consider: is research a skill we need to teach?"

We have several families who have said they would like to join Em and I and work in Fun-Schooling with Reptiles & Amphibians journal.

Read the blog post for the coupon code to purchase the physical journal. If you have purchased the pdf and printed it, you are more than welcome to use that too.

We will be starting the challenge on 06 March 2023 and do 1 animal per week. To complete by 31 October 2023.

3 families have a chance to win 2 journals of their choice. Spot prizes will also be up for grabs throughout the challenge.


Giveaway & Spot Prize Rules:

  1. A parent and the child (or children) must each have their own journal. The goal is for us to teach our children how to research (read the previous blog post)
  2. Be a member of the Fun-Schooling in South Africa - With Thinking Tree Books Facebook Group.
