Over the past few days my boys and I have spent most of our time enjoying the outdoors. It’s really difficult to contain us inside when the skies are singing, the forests are coming to life, and we can cast our sweatshirts away for plain t’s. This is what I LOVE about homeschooling, we get to learn through nature and exploration.
We’ve hit the bike trails to identify many types of birds flying overhead.
We went out a bit too early to forage for morel mushrooms but had fun in nature nonetheless. We reviewed our rules of being in nature, identified trees, weeds, and even sighted a giant snapping turtle along the way. (If you’re new to foraging with kids, read my post from last year called, Foraging Outdoors with Children.)
