Spring nature study

 There is nothing  better than learning through nature. It's fun and most of all it's easy since everything is outside your door. 
The boys and I have been studying the six days of creation and have taken a little extra time on day 3 (land and plants). So what have our studies looked like?  Below are a few of the things we have done so far.

^^^^ We planned out and planted or starters for our herb garden ( I have a bit of a black thumb) praying that I don't mess this one up^^^

^^^ we also planted sunflower seeds which  we are watching grow.... so far so good ^^^^

^^^ We learned and painted the parts of a flower (this is inspired by the printable by Homeschool Creation ) ^^^^

^^^^^Most importantly we went outside and enjoyed all that the Lord created for us^^^

One thing I love about teaching the boys at home is that learning goes hand in hand with life. Lessons can be planned with whatever you are doing. Are you planting a garden this year? Teach your kids a little while you do it. It really can be that simple at this age.
