Homeschooling Nature Study study

Meadowland and Woodland Nature Study


Welcome to week 4 of our nature study.  This week I thought I would give you a walk up past the meadow and through the woodland, past the dead tree we will be studying (next week) and on to the huge ‘Wishing Tree’ we are currently studying.  This will be a photo rich post.  I hope you enjoy the beautiful nature we experience each day….

At this point we have just walked past the meadow and have come to the bridge which stretches over the little brook:

The children can’t help but climb each time we come here:

Then it’s through, around, under, and even over the gate:

Further up:

And further in:

Through the thicket and out into a slight opening:

Wandering up alone:

Reaching a cross roads….which way now?

Phew, chose the right way, as marked by the dead tree on our left, which we are studying at the same time as the Wishing Tree:

And just past the dead tree we find our Wishing Tree, the majesty of the opening formed:

Of course, they all had to join hands, circling the tree whilst making another wish 🙂

What nature study have you been doing this week?

    My kids would love that tree!

    • It’s a shame it doesn’t just have one lower branch so the children could climb it. That would make it just perfect!

  2. That tree is so gorgeous! You have inspired me to find a nature study place in my urban home. I hope to post about it later today.
    Blessings, Dawn

  3. I am so (I know I shouldn’t say it) jealous! Wish we could be there, too.

    • Hello!! Did you enjoy your holiday? I missed you. And you’ve made your blog secret now? 🙁

      • We had a lovely vacation and then came home to a lot of remodel/refresh projects. No, it isn’t a secret. Just off for a bit while I get myself organized.

  4. We haven’t really done much with nature lately, and I rather miss it. But Texas in summer isn’t the place for nature study because no one wants to be outside.
