Our school holiday project was to complete the next section of our wheels…
The children were debating whether this was still classified as ‘school’ work, and if they were being tricked into working on their holidays!
I will be honest and say that I have a terrible habit of finding educational projects and passing them off as ‘fun’ activities for the holiday break 😉
The verdict was that even though it looked like mum was making them do ‘school’ work on the holidays, they enjoyed it, so it didn’t matter! At least it wasn’t math 😀
It was lovely to hear the children discussing the highlights of our March nature study. This is such a great way to remember each month of the year.
Have you started your wheel yet?

Note: Lynn Seddon from Raising Little Shoots has created an image guide on how to set up a phenology wheel. It’s fantastic! It’s inspired us to make our own Southern Hemisphere phenology wheels with an Australian twist by adding indigenous seasons in the inner circle. You can find her Phenology Wheel Guide here.
