Outdoor Hour button
Originally uploaded by HarmonyArtMom.
We're participating in the Outdoor Hour.  Charlotte Mason stressed nature walks throughout a child's education.  In Kindergarten, we will only be taking nature walks to develop the habit of being outdoors and appreciating the wonders of nature.  Next year we'll be doing full-fledged nature studies with the excellent guide Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock.  

Harmony Art Mom has a fantastic blog that details her observations and sketches using Handbook of Nature Study.  The photos are terrific, too.  We will be posting our findings as soon as they are available.

I love Barb's Outdoor Hour studies! And we're CM homeschoolers, too, so I hope to get to know you better; please stop in and visit me sometime! :-)
