QuirkyKidAcademy Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 I'm a US Southeastern girl. I was raised among towering pines and babbling streams. We moved to the high desert of southeastern NM two years ago (and began our homeschooling journey). I'd love to do some nature study stuff with DS, but all the ideas in books I've seen seem to be for more forested or prairie type areas. We have ONE tree on our 5 acres - about 8ft tall. We are surrounded by creosote plants and cholla cactus (which seems to be suffering a blight as they are all dying). No grass/weeds; no bushes. Cactus, creosote, and dirt. And snakes. The only thing that really changes around here is the temperature - cool in the winter (even cold occasionally) and hot as Hades in the summer. (On the bright side - no humidity and no mosquitoes! Love that!) After you get through shaking your head at how unimaginative I am, I'd appreciate suggestions on activities and/or books that might give me ideas.
