Specimen Collecting

BalletBoy and I caught an awesome shiny green tiger beetle on our nature walk.  We examined him in the specimen jar then let him go.

We also collected one of each of the wildflowers we saw for a total of eight specimens, from buttercups to violets, and pressed them in the flower press when we got home.  We’ll see how they come out.

Overall, we’re having such a blast with biology this year.

  1. Will you be adding biology to the Science without a Net? I really appreciate the work you have put into it. I love your information on there and would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for it to continue.

  2. Spring is my favorite time of year for science – nature study is a natural thing for kids, and they consider it play rather than school.

    I’m glad you are all enjoying your biology studies!
