Our November nature study grid has enjoyed a special spot on the chalkboard above the kitchen table. It’s easy to glance up then turn and take notice of our November world. One of the nature suggestions was to take a walk in the rain. So, one wet Wednesday we did just that. The Wednesday the cold front was coming in and our area was under a tornado watch. The weather was still quite warm and there was a break in the rain. Out we went.
Heard: Wind rustling leaves, blowing the last of them off the trees. Thunder in the distance. Rain tap, tapping.
Some sketched, colored maple seeds. And some stayed close to the weather alert radio. The next afternoon we followed up with a chalk pastel lesson from Nana: Tree Silhouette.
A wonderful Wednesday weather watching and noticing nature in our November world. Many thanks to Handbook of Nature Study.
