Incorporating Art Into Your Nature Studies: Wildlife Wednesday

We do a lot of different nature & wildlife activities. One of the best things we've incorporated into our homeschool nature studies - is art. It's fun and interesting. It helps the boys remember what they have seen. It reinforces what they have learned either out in the field or in studies & reading afterward.

Benign Creative Ambiguity - An Open Letter to Church Leadership Regarding Genesis Creation

Close Encounters: Of the Wildlife Wednesday kind!

       

We had a close encounter with a gopher tortoise this week! He actually got IN the house. He's been coming up onto our porch and scratching at the back door - just like the dog does - to let us know he wants in. 

When I stepped out to take his picture - I expected him to shy away into his shell.
