Yea! We are back to weekly nature studies! The boys and I both really enjoy this part of our homeschooling. I decided to start our studies with backyard birds, to tie in to our animal classification studies in science. For the first week we covered red birds.
On our nature walk we were lucky enough to spot a cardinal! When we go on these walks the boys typically talk my ears off and jump from subject to subject. Today I made them all walk in silence to listen for bird calls. Then we stopped and stood under this tree and just looked and waited and the cardinal showed up. :)
It was quite hot so we took a short walk. Ds2 was able to join us as his high school doesn’t start until the 24th. I tell ‘ya, I’m going to miss that boy. Next week? Blue birds! Join in on the Outdoor Challenge Hour fun at Barbara’s Handbook Of Nature Study.
