I've been taking nature walks with the kids since before they could walk and encouraging them to observe the world around them. Last week we did our first "formal" nature study, on wildflowers. Here's what we did..
Each girl chose a flower to sketch. I love how much time they spent concentrating on this activity and how they actually drew what they were observing (versus drawing what they think a flower should look like).
I have a feeling that this is the first of many nature studies for my young naturalists!
