Here is unschooling at its finest! A wanted to learn about what kinds of things eat flies. So we bought a Venus fly trap (we are also studying plants, hence the tie in!) She drew all sorts of things that eat flies. Do you see the spider & web? How about the frog? And of course the fly trap :) LOVE it!

I wasn't entirely prepared for this adventure as we had only planned on going to the children's museum, but they wanted to go to on a nature walk too at Buffalo River State Park (which is 20 or so miles from the museum) so we went there on a whim and I only had my cell phone to take pictures.
We went down to the river and just sat on the rocks for quite a while, watching the river flow, throwing in twigs to see them float, and tossing in stones to see them drop. I did have snacks in the car for the kids, so we sat down and ate our snacks there.
We saw moss growing on the trees.

Well, spring is here and we are back out spending time at Buffalo River State Park. They must be prepping the pond for summer because there were several loads of fresh clean sandpiles sitting in the swimming hole. The kids seriously enjoyed climbing and digging. Its supposed to rain the next couple days, but hopefully we'll be able to make it out here again soon!

First the kids read the Lorax (after a bit they got bored of the reading part, we switched to the nook and they used the read to me feature ha ha ha) Also, you'll see that A is "reading" along with the story. She has read it so many times on the nook that its pretty much memorized!
Then they started working on some projects drawing a Truffula tree. It was using multiple mediums...

A made a little winter birdfeeder (shape of a heart) today. She also made us a pizza lunch :) Ideas were from her latest Highlights "High Five" magazine
