For nature study this week we focused on summer weather. Specifically we observed a sunrise and sunset. We tackled the sunset first.
We talked about what we could see (cool colors in the clouds) and hear (birds, crickets and frogs) and feel (slight breeze, soft grass.) I asked them to compare the evening sensations to what we felt walking across the supermarket parking lot around lunch time…big difference lol!
The boys made some drawings in their nature journals. We attracted a lot of attention, from neighbors out on bike rides or walks, from their friend across the street, and from…
We had every intention of getting up early and ushering in the sunrise in the back yard, but of course life got in the way. Dh came home from his two week trip to California and the boys spent his first day back glued to hip lol. Then they got sick, ds3 with the worst of it. Although I have no pics to document it, ds3 and I did observe the sunrise this morning, through the living room curtains, after having spent a rough night on the couch.
Ds was not too impressed and just wanted to lay back down. I was reminded that following every dark period there will be a light. :) Yawn. Times like this I wish I drank coffee. For more great nature study ideas please head over to Barb’s.
