Since we live in a condo in Downtown, every bit of nature exposure must be intentional, as I can't just say "go play in the yard, kids." I also realize that all of our nature is fabricated nature. Even the creek that we play in is man-made. We make the best of what we have nearby, and in the future we'll have lessons at the farm, by the Mississippi, at state parks, etc.
For our first Outdoor Hour, we went in search of evidence of rabbits! We didn't have to walk far before finding lots of clues.
The girls searching for evidence Rabbit poop! That's a sure sign.
Millie is sure this was a rabbit print Rabbit hole?
It looks like a rabbit has been chewing on this tree.
My two favorite websites for nature study are Charlotte Mason In The City
and Handbook Of Nature Study. Check them out!
