Nature Study-Autumn Picnic

As I mentioned in my last post, we had an autumn picnic as our nature study. Actually, the theme was an equinox picnic but it was a few days before the equinox and there was a general autumn theme. Again, we used Exploring Nature with Children. Don't forget that my 30% voucher for this excellent book is valid until 30th September. 

Having eaten, first of course, we went on a scavenger hunt. We looked for red leaves.

Evergreen leaves.

Conkers-OK this wasn't part of the hunt.

The children decided to put down conkers for squirrels and a squirrel came and collected a conker. 

An oak with a partially rotted interior.


There was plenty of tree climbing and some sketching.

I love the way that we are seeing more in a very familiar environment.
