Nature Study- Outdoor Hour Challenge

We were blessed to recieve a link to an amazing blog yesterday. Some of you may already be aware of it - but if not, I think you'll enjoy it. It is now called "The Outdoor Hour". The blogger is a homeschool mom who sets up weekly "challenges" for other homeschoolers using "The Handbook of Nature Study" by Anna Botsford Comstock.

As many of you already know - "The Handbook of Nature Study" is THE spinebook for nature study for us. We continue to learn and truly enjoy nature lessons and study using the Handbook as my guide. I have gleaned so much from the lessons and information in this book. The Outdoor Hour Challenges assist in getting the most from your handbook. I have enjoyed not only her blogs but the beautiful nature pictures and journals from her own children. I highly recommend trying the challenges. It is an easy way to enjoy the outdoors with your children in a traditional Charlotte Mason style with the comfort and ease of challenges already planned for you, the span of the internet, and the enjoyment of fellowship with other moms and their children as we enjoy the beautiful world the Lord blessed us with together!

I will be posting my family's rise to "The Challenge" weekly so you can enjoy doing them right along with us. Once you link to the outdoor site, please link to our blog as well as we look forward to seeing what our members are doing! Enjoy!
