I want us to do an ongoing nature study throughout our homeschooling years. Caroline has a nature sketchbook, but we have not done too much with it so far. With spring having arrived, the back yard abounds with opportunities for nature study, so we took a little side trip into insect study last week. The sheets above were made by a homeschooling friend of mine, and we used them to find out some information about some insects in our yard.
We observed carpenter bees (helping our blueberries to grow!) and inchworms.
