Nature as a teacher
A homeschool friend of mine sent me this link, and I thought this woman was very informative. She uses nature as her class room so much, and I really admire that. I want to try to do that more often. I need to learn more about nature myself. I guess I can learn it along with Canaan, right? Speaking of nature... we spent Friday afternoon at a homeschool friend's house. They live on several acres, with some beautiful land. It was super hot and humid, but we toughed it up and went for a walk around their pond, looking for some nature ourselves. There was nothing too exciting, but we did see a blue heron (I think), some raccoon footprints, ate some wild muscadines, (sp?) and made plans for some future projects when this dreadful south GA heat lets up a little. Late that afternoon when I was leaving, as I was pulling out of their driveway I happened to look over and saw a HUGE rattlesnake right next to the road. It was probably about four feet long, super fat, and only about 10 feet away from her mailbox. I took a picture on my phone, but I haven't ever tried to upload from my phone to the computer. I will see if I can figure that out sometime this week.
