A walk in the woods

Our homeschooling group got together to go for a nature walk along the river. The children took bags to collect leaves, plants and whatever else they could find. We also took along binoculars to watch the birds in their habitat. These are the outings the children love the best, hunting high and low to find new and interesting discoveries, watching spiders spin their webs, looking at cocoons hanging from leaves. When we got home out came their nature and sketch books to make personal recordings of our days events.

“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.” ~ George Washington Carver
