What Your Sisters Are Saying

Running Wild Explorers has been an amazing investment of time for my family. The organized schedules keep us right on track, and make the outside activities intentional and meaningful!

But honestly, the extra facts and jokes sprinkled in are my kids favorites!

A few years ago, our homeschool co-op struggled to find exactly what we wanted in a nature study curriculum, so she decided to write one herself!! This is our second year to use Running Wild Explorers and I can say from experience that it’s the best nature study curriculum out there!

I've been homeschooling for over twenty years and in that time I've seen a lot of curricula come and go. RWE is one that will stand the test of time...RWE is organized and laid out for you to open it up and get going without... research and prep. The discussion prompts are the real treasure...tailor to exactly what your family needs
