The first field trip we went on this past week was to the Columbus Metropolitan Library to hear a lesson by the Ohio Beekeeper’s Association. Our homeschool field trip co-op set it up, and it was a great time!

Monkey is 4 years 2 months old
This past week, we ended up doing several different nature studies as our main focus–we hit owls, birds, and insects! Monkey loves learning about nature, so she really is drawn to nature-based activities. Although, halfway through the “grosser” parts of the lessons, she decides to pretend things are a bit too gross. She had me fooled thinking she wouldn’t touch the owl pellets, since she was walking around the room saying “I’m *not* touching owl puke!” over and over again. Until I looked over and she was totally engrossed in dissecting her pellet and trying to match the bones to her bone chart!
Here are a few pictures from this week’s lessons…
