Homeschool Lessons from Nature: All Kits Learn Differently

Homeschool Lessons from Nature: All Kits Learn Differently
I was watching a bunny run across my back yard.  Now, bunnies always catch my attention - but it was the reason for running that KEPT my attention. Apparently, Mr Bunny did NOT want to mess with a family of raccoons.  One mommy raccoon and four baby kits we slowly making their way toward our neighbor's house.  I've never seen a raccoon with four babies before! When they came to the gate, mommy and three babies...

Homeschool Lessons from Nature: Hummingbirds are like Teenage Girls!

Homeschool Lessons from Nature:  Hummingbirds are like Teenage Girls!
Hummingbirds are like teenage girls.  Have you ever watched a hummingbird?  They are so petite, and feminine-looking.   Beautiful colors, and so soft they seem to even FLY softly.  I was watching hummingbirds from a restaurant window once, and the waiter let me in on a little secret.  Sure the birds LOOK sweet, but they are warriors at heart. The waiter expained how much they fight, using their sharp beak as a weapon.  I don't know if...

Homeschool Lessons from Nature: Bluejays are Like Boys
Blue jays are like teenage boys.  I was watching some gorgeous Blue Jays in my backyard.  They are remarkably blue, and fairly large birds about the size of crows.  Three of them were making a lot of noise together, when suddenly one of the birds started acting funny.  Flapping his wings widely, he looked like he was hurt.  He started making loud noises, and opening is mouth wide, like he was gagging.  Poor bird!

Homeschool Lessons from Nature: Raccoons Homeschool Their Young!
It was such a thrill to see a raccoon family in my backyard!  I had so much fun watching them!  After a while, though, I realized that the raccoon and I had something in common.  We both homeschool. As I was watching, the raccoon mother was carefully explaining the ways of the world to her almost adult-sized child.  She was teaching him to crawl up and down the fence, so he could run along the fence...
