While I was going over Middle's preschool lessons about nature I decided to take all the kids on a scavenger hunt at the nature preserve a few miles down the road from us. I gave the older two kids a list with different items that they should look for (eg. pine cones, acorns, pond, snake, etc.). When they found an item they got to take a picture of it. They had so much fun taking pictures that they didn't want to stop so they continued to snap away long after they had finished finding everything on their list.
Oldest took this picture of the path that we were walking down.
Middle took this one of a field off of our trail.
Middle took this one of some fallen trees.
He also took this picture of the pond which you can just barely see beyond the overgrowth.
Oldest took this picture of the bald eagle that is part of the center's animal rehabilitation program.
