Green Hour Challenge
God's creation is astounding in dimension, depth and just plain beauty. I've come to really appreciate all of the homeschooling Moms who commit themselves to getting their kiddos out of the house and into God's creation. For our family, the lure of God's world brought us out of the suburbs and into our 10-acre world of flora and fauna. We want our kids to be naturally drawn outdoors and to be curious about the creatures they find.
Here is a perfect weekly challenge for me to make sure I'm accomplishing this very central thing in our days ... the Green Hour Challenge. I've enjoyed Barb's blog for quite some time. She directly assisted me with ideas on visiting a local art museum with my oldest two children.
So ... if you've been secretly wishing to incorporate a bit o' nature in your homeschool week, click on over and visit Barb and see what she's got going for budding nature enthusiasts.
