Backyard Ecosystems






Backyard Ecosystems was the study topic yesterday afternoon. The children borrowed my camera to capture their discoveries. I was there too, busy answering questions and weeding the garden. However when I looked at my camera this evening, I seems they had enjoyed studying each other even more!








Now that last one made me laugh! We certainly have some interesting specimens in our backyard!

Fantastic specimens! I love to see what kids capture when behind the camera.

Our backyard ecosystem (by way of our pond, particularly) is one of our favorite things.
While there isn't much to observe right now, it's so fascinating to think about the living things - frogs, minnows, turtles, insects, that are living far beneath the layer of hip-deep snow & equal amount of ice. How the survive it is incredible to me.

Great captures of their eco systems study. I remember doing something similar and we studied how wasps made their nests and we were surprised at how they syphon water off the nest when it rains.

It's great when we can apply what we learn in our science to our own backyard too. Suz, you're most welcome to come and teach here :)
