I have been wanting to try out the Outdoor Hour Challenge from Handbook of a Nature Study and we finally got the chance. I ordered the book and it is a lot thicker than I expected, but full of some good stuff!
We started with the Apple study, but I do intend to go back and complete the previous challenges at some point this fall. Big Ladybug LOVES apples so she was really excited about this!
We read the Handbook of Nature Study and the book How Do Apples Grow? We then compared a Honeycrisp and Golden Delicious. Check out the 2 normal size apples next to the giant apple we found at the store. (It still tasted yummy!)
Here are the notebook pages we completed after observing the apples. Big Ladybug loves to draw, so she enjoyed this. She kind of lost her enthusiasm while completing the Venn Diagram, but she is only 6, and made it through.
She perked right back up when it was time to eat them and keeps begging me to make apple pie!
