We are having such a fun time with our nature study this year using the book "The Nature Connection".
On a recent warm January day, we wrote a nature poem as we hiked.
:: "Warm Winter, Cold Day," by Jack & Lena ::
:: Dead corn, Panting dog ::
:: Light breeze, Fallen trees ::
:: Cold ice, Grey rocks ::
:: High sun, Stream run ::
So, that was that! The lesson for the kids here, is that poems need not rhyme all the time!!
I felt a bit funny putting the kids in winter wear on such a warm day. But as you can see by the puddle fun, it was a good decision! They played in the creek for quite a while, too, and were pretty wet when all was done.
