Our young adventurers, Jaxon & Harleigh, lead us on a Backyard Adventure!
Start each section with a letter from our adventurers. These letters give your child a challenge and something to pay attention to while doing the activities. They also share stories to help your child make connections to their real-life making learning meaningful.
Jaxon & Harleigh model good questioning and curiosity. The goal is to ignite that curiosity in your child. You’ll soon notice your child asking questions and sharing their curiosities in the same way as the adventurers.
