School Day Snapshots - Nature Walk

Don't just read about nature, get out in it!
It's even more fun with a friend.

You never know what you might find...we found a river!

Who knew there was so much beauty smack dab in the middle of Suburbia?!  Keely, the girl in the orange shirt below, just finished learning about rivers, streams, estuaries, etc. so how cool was it to experience it in person after reading all about it?!

After a morning of reading, phonics, math, etc., it's nice to get out and run!


Once you're back home, have the kids talk about what they saw on their walk and record them in their nature journals.  The whole experience will make the natural world jump off the pages of the textbook and come to life!

There's no school like homeschool :o)
