BREAK WEEK | EXPLORING NATURE WITH CHILDREN

Next week is a break week in Exploring Nature With Children. 

To keep up your nature study momentum, spend a little time discussing the changes that have been happening in your own special nature spot. Talk about the topics that they’ve recently been learning about: 
• What do they remember about how & where birds build their nests?
• How do we tell apart frogs and toads?
• Tell what they know about the Vernal Equinox.

Do keep in mind these wise words from Miss Mason’s book: School Education:
We have all been in the case of the little girl who said, “Mother, I think I could understand if you did not explain quite so much.”

Here are some links for an extra little break week fun:
