We took advantage of a beautiful afternoon yesterday and completed our Fall Tree Nature Study. We haven’t be doing any of the Handbook of Nature Study Blog Challenges since the spring and we had a lot of fun getting started again. The kids each got to pick new trees for this year.
Fairy picked her favorite apple tree. (She spends a lot of time up in that tree). The apple tree will definitely go through a lot of changes throughout the year and should make for a fun study. She spent a lot of time trying to pick just the right color green for the leaves.
Bug picked a Rock Elm, which we identified earlier this fall, that is right smack in the middle of the yard. This is a great choice because we can see if from the kitchen table. He added halloween characters to his tree drawing (I guess it shows it’s autumn). LOL – that boy doodles in every margin.
