Nature Study - April 1, 2011

On our Spring/Summer schedule Science is scheduled for Fridays and it is a favorite. Even the twins come out to learn!

 Every season we study the same tree to observe and document the changes.  We chose a Post Oak in the front of our  house, observed the makings of an acorn and buds in the tree.

Inspection of the trunk was necessary in order to find if any insects were using it as a home or restaurant...

They chose Post Oak leaves and stamped them for the Nature Book - and picked up old acorns to compare with new.
