here, we were to do some outdoor time, and then spend more time on our focus area.
We are focusing on Mammals, so today we focused on our pet rabbit Buttercup. She is a Dutch variety. We specifically learned several new things about her. She does not have pads on her feet like our dog. She has a type of eyelash, which is really a type of whisker over her eyes. Our "cottontail" really has a tiny, black tail which is very different than the outdoor variety.
We filled out special Mammal notebook pages and drew pics of our Buttercup. We also were to start a collection to supplement our Nature Journal in our focus area, which is a little more difficult with mammals. But, you can see here our Monthly Bird List and Tweet and See that Kingdom Arrows is heading up for the year of 2011. Please consider joining in starting the end of January by keeping a list of all the birds you hear or see over the month.
