Putting them in the "way of things worth observing"

One of my favorite things to do while homeschooling is to get out of the house and have some "hands on learning". We've had some wonderful classes and field trip this past year. I want to have a record of them, so here goes.......

Carolina Tiger Rescue

The NC State Arboretum

Abbey was so excited to be able to sit at a real desk!

They learned about angiosperms and gymnosperms. They took home a plant that they grafted.

 Camp Flintlock

 Mordecai House

School House of wonder on the Eno River, to study plants and bugs

 Introduction to edible wild plants(of course, Abbey will eat anything)

Water quality at Eno River, determined by the presence of certain types of bugs

Bugs at Hemlock Bluffs

Metamorphosis at Durant. These are representations of the life cycle of bugs.
