Welcome to the Charlotte Mason Carnival. I’m so glad to have you here. Make yourself at home, browsing the wonderful posts here this week. We have lots of thoughtful posts about CM philosophy in general and a nice dose of spring time nature study.
Let’s start with nature study posts as an appetizer:
- Michelle Cannon presents A Stream of Studies in Nature posted at The Holistic Homeschooler.
- Barb shares a challenge and a free notebooking page at Outdoor Hour Challenge-Signs of Spring Bonus Challenge.
- Pamela says, “We live in a rural area with animals, so nature study and observation are an inherent part of my children’s education. I’m learning that sometimes, the children are more observant than I am about the animal behavior.” Go see what she’s talking about at Evil Chickens.
