Outdoor Hour: Finishing up Worms

The sixth Green Hour Challenge assignment was to start a collection. We do have some rocks that we could organize, but we ended up doing a worm dissection yesterday, so I didn't do anything with the collection idea.

Our plan is to read about and look for garden snails and spiders, then move on to insects. We will continue to observe our wormery (click link for instructions), but now that the dissection is done we're ready to move on. :-) We didn't see much on Thursday, although we found a pill bug that died. I will see if the kids want to start an insect collection to go with our nature study. Here are some pics from Thursday's outdoor time:

a nice, juicy worm

Although this isn't technically nature-related, I had to add the picture of Nathan and Jordan dancing on the picnic table.

I think collections just happen over time. Keep up the good work with your weekly nature study.

I love the picnic table shot....do I see garden boxes in the background??? Cool.
