birding for homeschoolers

Hey, what are you guys looking at?

Was that a song sparrow? Or a Carolina wren? It was moving fast, what did you see? It was brownish, low to the ground, moving through the bushes.

Yesterday's topic was backyard birds for the Ed-Ventures @ Ijams homeschool class I hosted at the nature center. Ed-Ventures @ Ijams is a total of eight classes each based on one of the natural sciences. Last month it was entomology, i.e. insects. Yesterday it was ornithology, i.e. we went birdwatching. Next month's topic is geology. And we have a lot of rocks to look at with two abandoned quarries.
