Nature Walk

Last week we went on a Nature Walk for school.  Our neighborhood is in the desert so we have lots of desert trails to wander on, seeing lots of desert  animals and plants.

Hmm… what creatures live in these holes?

We walked along in the Wash next to our home and explored the plants and ground.

We sat under the tree and watched a butterfly and the dragonflies while we just listened to nature happening all around us.  (the wind, birds singing, bugs buzzing…)  then we realized that little black ants were crawling all over the place so we went up the hill to the park and played.  That’s when we saw the cute rabbit and quail,  and watched the hawks flying around overhead.  It was a very relaxing morning!

I had the girls draw a picture and write about their Nature Walk experience in their school books.
