Bird Unit wrap up

We have wrapped up our bird unit. We really enjoyed the unit, we learned alot and made quite a few memories.

We have recently added time for learning, an online program for math and language arts to our curriculum.

We took last week and part of this week off from our unit studies to take a bajillion completely unrelated field trips.

I believe that our next unit study according to KONOS would be Light. But we might take a quick break to study domestic animals briefly. Lately the kids have been very interested in keeping track of the cat and the dogs. Well, and practically speaking, we need to put some time into training our dog... you know, two birds.... one stone....

Birds at the zoo

We got a special treat when we were looking at the birds in the zoo. The kookaburra bird did his famous laugh for us. It was awesome! We sang the kookaburra song through the zoo after that for quite a while.

Bird watching on Bolivar Penninsula

Today we went bird watching. We saw some loons, a ton of seagulls, and pelicans. A sweet little family of Turns entertained us.

All in all we expected to see many more birds, but all the trees were damaged in Ike, so the birds don't have as many places to land.

The focus shifted to seashells, but it was still a blast.
