We have some lovely entries to this Nature Study edition of the Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival! Because so many of the entries relate to nature and the outdoors, we are dedicating this edition to nature study. (Although, as always, other topics are included as well.)
“We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree. And it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.” –Charlotte Mason
Barb-Harmony Art Mom and family give us a insightful example of studying cattails through the seasons, as suggested in the classic Handbook of Nature Study. Read her post The End of Our Year-Long Cattail Study posted at her gorgeous blog, Handbook of Nature Study.
Barb-Harmony Art Mom presents a second article recounting her trials and insights in Planning Astronomy Gives Me a Good Thump on the Head posted at her second blog, Harmony Art Mom.
Sharing two posts with us today is Tricia Hodges. First, she exhorts us to enjoy learning with our children her post Deliberate Delight – Nature Study about their summer natures studies posted at Habits for a Happy Home.
(I don’t know about the rest of you all, but I am impressed and a little intimidated by people who can keep up with more than one blog.) 🙂
