This month’s outdoor challenge is a fun and easy one for us!
We’ve had lots of experience fishing and eating fish and observing fish these past few months and I reminded the kids and we looked at the pictures and we’re excited to get some more experience next week!
Check out my husband’s post about ice fishing and chowder. My freezer is still stocked with cleaned and ready to cook trout!
Here’s the challenge grid this month. Do you receive the monthly newsletter from Handbook of Nature Study? You should. Go sign up and come back.
We went camping and fishing with friends over Memorial Day weekend and we’re about to head out again this weekend. Tori is our fisher girl. She loves it and is good at it!
Alex went on his first fishing trip and caught one!
After all that excitement and the rocking and rolling and motor, he was done.
We have an aquarium in our school room with live plants and plenty of fun fish to watch. The kids take turns feeding them and we clean it together. Apparently, we need to get on that.
We have a tadpole too. But I wonder if he’s got delayed development since he is barely forming legs and it’s been a couple months.
One of Tori’s favorite apps is Flick Fishing and she loves to see what the fish look like. She thinks the Mahi Mahi is yummy, but very ugly. I love listening to her observations about the fish she catches in this game. She knows what kind of water they’re in and what they look like and what they eat. I love it!
One of our best friends is an avid hunter and fisherman and we love to hear his fishing and hunting stories. One of my favorites is of the time he went deep sea fishing in the Florida panhandle and his line snapped from a big ole grouper. The pole popped him in his forehead and he knocked himself out. He almost fell overboard. Good times.
We studied Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day: Exploring Creation With Zoology 2 for science a couple years ago and it’s still a wonderful resource to reference.
