If you read my introduction this month, the book we picked would not surprise you. We went with a book about Walden Pond. The great outdoors is something we really have talked about a lot this last few weeks. We are getting ready for our summer of enjoying the outdoors as much as we can.
The book we read was If You Spent a Day with Thoreau at Walden Pond (Christy Ottaviano Books). This is a book about learning how Thoreau spent his days and how simple his life was. I like that this books makes you think about what you are doing.
One part to know about this trip is that we really did look at nature in the great outdoors and why it is important for us to get out. I love the outdoors and it was a part of my childhood and I want it for theirs. On this trip we look a look at the animals and the plants that we could see.
Another part of this trip was watching how different the water is on all side of Walden Pond. We watched how calm the water was on each side of the pond as we hiked around. We noted on the map where the wave on the pond were rough and smooth and what was different about it. We also noted if there was any wind at that time.
After we finished up our trip we came out and worked on some nature journals. Rose worked on the animals first and then went to everything else. She likes keeping track of all of them that we see.
