June Links and Ideas

 

June is here!  A few links and ideas to add a bit of interest and learning fun to the month.

Nature study ideas for June-  The Nature Conservancy’s bird for June is the Cerulean Warbler.   The rose and honeysuckle are the flowers for June.  Why not take a day to learn more about these beautiful creations?

June is National Safety Month.  Have a family safety meeting. Do your children know how and when to call 911?  Ask your children to draw maps of your home and label the best exits in case of emergency. Then have them organize and execute a family fire drill.

Chayote_(5194455316)

June 17th is National Eat Your Vegetable Day.  Chayote anyone?  Why not browse the produce section with your children and together choose a new-to-you vegetable to prepare and eat together?

Are you headed to camp meeting this month?  Perhaps you will want to mention that on the AHE-List and arrange to meet up with other homeschooling families.  Make a few new connections!

Author Helen Keller, architect Frank Lloyd Wright and American patriot Nathan Hale were all born in June.
