Now, you may notice the glaring face in the center... they get kind of annoyed when they're headed for
I like it if we can get out several times a week for nature study, but at the VERY least, we have one nature walk scheduled every week. Some time back, around the end of last school year, we changed up our schedule a bit. We are now going on our walks on Fridays... I need to change that little box in my sidebar... hmmm. yeah.
Well, for our nature walks, this is what we do...
1) We go out our front door,
2) we walk either west or in a southwesterly direction,
3) we notice stuff,
4) we look very closely
5) we ask ourselves questions about what we see.
Now, that's not all that hard is it? Nope. Easy-peasy-nice-and-cheesy as my kids have been heard to say once or twice or seventy-five thousand times, take your guess. Once we get home we do our sketches and fill in an entry in our nature journal/sketch books.
Now, sometimes, like lately, we've been getting a little bored trodding the common path... even though we can depend on seeing something new every time. So, sometimes we toss things up a bit... like this week. We got ourselves up a creek... and boy were we ever glad. I think we'll do it again real soon. Micah even came with us for a rare treat! Here are some pictures from this week's walk, enjoy!
