Okay, this week’s nature study focus continued on birds, specifically the goldfinch, meadowlark and feathers. We had a very nice neighborhood walk and observed many things but nary a feather at all. Sigh.
We did spot a lot of mushrooms. This tiny one caught our eyes. Ds4 for some reason has really been into mushrooms and he was excited to find so many.
At home we learned about the 6 types of feathers, the 3 main parts, and ds3 colored a goldfinch for his journal. We are really enjoying our bird study and I think it has made the boys more aware of the birds and bird activity in our neighborhood.
