Nature Study at the River


Old clothes + Boots + River = a great Nature Study

Rivers are a freshwater biome full of life and motion. They are a wonderful place for nature walks. A wonderful place to explore. Today, we grabbed a bucket and a net and off we went.... 





We had fun wading in the shallow parts of the river. Searching for treasures...





We brought along our Nature Study book to learn more about what we discovered. Aidan found a water penny while searching in the river. 




Here are a few of our other discoveries... 



While at the river we also talked about rocks, erosion, we studied the riparian zone (the land area along the river), river wildlife and habitats. 






Before leaving the boys drew and labeled everything they found in their nature journals. 



A day at the river... so peaceful... 




We had a wonderful time! There is nothing better than learning with my sons.
