Our week 1 study was on the winter sky.
Week 2 was on the moon.
Week 3 was on trees.
Week 4 was a pond study.
This week's nature study them was Candlemas. I have to admit I had never heard of this before. Candlemas is observed on February 2nd (halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox)and is known as "The Feast of the presentation of Christ in the temple."
The nature study was to take a walk and look for signs of new life. I have to tell you that we had some beautiful days this week, in the 70's. But I did not look ahead at the weather and February 2nd was cold and cloudy! Our "walk" was in the yard and very short. The children looked for anything that suggested spring.
Christian found some weeds that started growing in the yard and drew those.
Lily found some leaves on the rosebush.
Anthony saw a robin at the bird feeder.
