Summer is a Great Time for Exploring Nature

Friday, June 6, 2008

My six year old loves Animal Planet and often pretends to be a croc hunter. My three year old is obsessed with Diego and pretends to rescue animals. I love that they have both become animal lovers. We go on family walks after dinner and often spot cool creatures to look up online. We've seen osprey, Canadian geese, mallards, rabbits, robins, cardinals, blue crabs, blue jays, woodpeckers, turtles, blue herons, raccoons, and the occasional Great Dane;) The opportunities for learning naturally abound this time of year. Walks, trips to the beach or just playing in the back yard will offer unique and up close encounters with nature. Here are a few sites I've recently explored and found very useful:
National Geographic Kids
National Wildlife Federation Kids
The Life of Birds
Check them out and see what you think.
