Nature Study: Owls

This spring we did a nature study of owls. We watched barn owls via a web cam (link to be included later) and charted the owlets growth. We read many books about barn owls. We visited our local aviary to watch the owls there (we had tried to catch the keeper talk on owls, but somehow missed it). We did owl crafts and fingerplays. And we finished our unit by dissecting owl pellets! M was fascinated, and asked if we could dissect pellets again sometime. I’m so glad I waited for my husband to help out with the dissecting project; even though the baby was sleeping on my back, I did need the extra hands to keep C on task and keep her from touching her face/mouth.

  • LipperLoppy? what???

    “LipperLoppy” is a word that my daughters invented. It is usually used as a silly adjective or noun. It's a frequent family joke and a good representation of our family's crazy joyful life.
