Nature Study.

Not too long ago, we went outside for a little nature study. We had been listening to different bird calls and were trying to see how many different birds we could recognize in our own backyard. I got the idea when I was searching through the NWF Green Hour activity section. They have all kind of bird calls in their Issue #109.

We were able to hear 5 different birds (although we weren't able to identify all of them). Afterwards, we got out our drawing pads and made some nature drawings of birds, flowers, and trees. It was a fun and productive time spent outside.

Marco worked hard at his nature drawing.
