We are loving the fall weather around here. Each morning we go out for Outdoor Hour and explore God's creations, it is the best time of the day. Because we are studying Botany this year, using Exploring Creation with Botany, we have been combining our science studies with Outdoor Hour. This week we dissected a flower and we were all amazed, nature is so cool! We used Notebooking Pages Publisher to custom design our own pages for each lesson, along with the Wildflowers, Weeds, & Garden Flowers set that also has a bonus Trees and Plants pages.
Today we are using the Parts of a Flower page from the Flowers set. Reading the text from Lesson 3 we learned about each part of the flower, identified it on the flower and labeled it on our notebooking page. The Little's even love to join us for Botany, I used the unlabeled flower page for them and they taped the parts we identified over the parts on the picture. Needless to say we went through a dozen flowers or so, good thing Little Woman's petunia patch was overflowing with specimens and we let a little patch of sunflowers go crazy in the back corner. We used both of these flowers for identification purposes.
It is amazing how you can read something from a book and think, "Wow, that is pretty cool." Then you actually look, touch, smell and have a hands on experience with what you read about and it is a whole new learning experience, you connect with that subject and have a desire to learn more.
For more information about Notebooking Pages you can visit their website, here. I purchased a Lifetime Membership last year and have never looked back. We use these pages for about every subject and I even use them to design pages for my Modern Day Herbal, more on that another time.
