The Mad Scientist: The Hunt is On

It is I, the mad scientist! Join me and my minions as we study some of God’s amazing creatures; learning tons of fun facts along the way.


Summer_ScienceThe weather is too beautiful to remain indoors all week long. I think it is high time we got on some walking shoes and explored the world of birds!

To help us on our quest, head over to Home School Creations and take a look at THIS awesome Bird Nature Study Printable. These sheets will help us get the most out of our adventure. (Jolanthe has a superb list of bird activities, printouts, and more which you might want to peruse as well. She is a valuable source for research and information.)

For our purposes, we will simply snag the Bird Nature Study sheets and head into the wild unknown. (Okay, not so unknown. We’ve actually gone to this park before, but it’s been a very long time.)

Our field trip (and science lesson) for the week is going to be at Descanso Gardens. They have wonderful walking paths, a hedge maze for the littles, a rose garden for mom, and a fairly decent sized lake for bird watching. At the lake, there are helpful guides to assist with your bird watching endeavors. We will use these, along with our printouts, to explore the world of birds.

If you are not able to head into the great outdoors or have no nature center nearby, consider checking out Birds of the Bible for Kids; right here on WordPress! Birds of the Bible is an incredible resource; they have so much to offer. Daily posts are uploaded with helpful information and resources about various birds mentioned in the Bible. If you haven’t already started following them, you are definitely missing out!

There you have it. Simple and sweet. The perfect way to study God’s creatures, get some exercise, and make memories. Bird watching! Now; go have some fun…

Time to Chime In: Are you a bird watcher? We are thinking of putting up a hummingbird feeder; any tips you can give us?

  1. UPDATE: (bummer) As it turns out, Descanso ended up closing earlier than we thought and so we didn’t get to explore their bird lake. We DID do our exploring elsewhere though and that was the point of the adventure! Best of luck on your bird watching!
