The Beekeeper’s Daughter

Naomi often accompanies Drew out to check the hives. The other day they came home with some ‘school’ work; more like ‘fascinating natural observation material’–or f’nom for short πŸ˜‰

Anyway, Drew thought to grab some comb with drone larvae in it and they sat at the table and analyzed them together, it was very sweet and Naomi was enthralled.

Then, we pulled out this great book. We love this book, the images and information can’t be beat! It really helps clarify the inner workings of the hive in a way that kids can understand.

We love impromptu learning…

Other great nature kid books we’ve noticed lately:

What’s on your summer reading list?

    I love that you can incorporate such "natural" nature into your teaching. That's an amazing gift that not many children get to have so up close!

    That's very cool. Maybe Drew would give a lesson to other homeschoolers. πŸ˜‰ I'll have to look for that book. Thanks for the tip!
