We love nature studies at our house. We have really been getting into tracking animal prints and listening for bird calls. The boys love to see birds and then try to figure out what kind of bird it is. I decided today I would share with you how I set up an easy space for the boys to watch all the wonderful things right outside our window. We are blessed to have a great sun room off the back of the house that is full of windows. Since the boys have been getting into learning about birds lately, I decided it would be fun to set up a bird watching station. I checked out several books from the Library, I did some research online to find free bird printables that I thought the boys would enjoy, and I laid out there feather collection.
I use to dream about looking out the window for school and being able to actually enjoy my surroundings. I feel truly blessed that I can do that for my boys. I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to do school like this.
If you are interested in getting more ideas on how to set up and start a nature study, I have a large Pinterest board on Nature Studies here.
Also a few links that I love to use for ideas on nature studies are handbook of nature study.
