Erbazi Botanical Garden 二叭子植物園

Finally our Tuesday nature class took place close to our home, in Xindian. We went to the Erbazi Botanical Garden 二叭子植物園 in Ankang 安康.
It's not easy to get there by public transportation. And that's why I picked up everyone from the Xindian MRT station and drove them there. If you would like to go there by public transportation then you first need to take MRT to the last station - Xindian 新店捷運站 and from there take bus 839 to 達觀社區達觀亭站.

Just after we met the teacher at the bus stop, she pointed out a "flying shrimp".

Coffee bee hawkmoth - Cephonodes hylas - 長喙天餓

He was eating from flowers which are a bit tricky - they tell the insects with their changing color (from yellow, through orange to red) if they are good to eat or not.

Lantana camara - 馬纓丹- Lantana pospolita

This week we observed many different spiders. Unfortunately I can't find the names of most of them.

Giant woods spider - 人面蜘蛛 - Nephila pilipes - Prządka olbrzymia

Ebrechtella tricuspidata - 花蛛

I've also spotted a very big praying mantis.

Kids got a chance to take a closer look at some grasshoppers:

This one must have just finished molting as it was not moving, probably still drying it's wings and getting all the fluids in the body running :-) We've found the skin close by.

Planthopper's nymph - 蠟蟬 若蟲

There were also quite a few ladybugs:

And other unidentified insects worth showing:

Tonga westwoodi - 綠瓢蠟蟬 


And also caterpillars:

There were also some birds that were posing for us:

Sparrowhawk - Accipiter virgatus - 松雀鷹 - Krogulec orientalny

We also looked at some fungi and plants:

Auriculariaceae - 木耳 - Uszakowate

So many wonderful things in nature! This walk was full of beauty and wonder.

Animals Classification Lapbook

Last week Jaś has been very busy working on the animal classification lapbook. Lately it's been very difficult to get him interested in doing any kind of project, but to my surprise he has finished this lapbook in just a few days! I am really proud of him.

I used a ready lapbook template from the wonderful Homeschool Share website, but I asked Jaś to writ all the information in his own handwriting instead of just printing the prepared text.

Here are the photos of his lapbook:

Czworokąty - lapbook

Niedawno pisałam o Jasia lapbooku o TRÓJKĄTACH.
Teraz czas na pokazanie naszego lapbooka o CZWOROKĄTACH. 

Taka forma uporządkowania wiadomości geometrycznych bardzo Jaśkowi odpowiada. Wszystko jest przedstawione jasno i przejrzyście. No i zawsze można wrócić do takiego lapbooka, otworzyć go i przypomnieć sobie co nie co.

Japonia Ani - Japan by Ania

Prace nad projektem o Japonii Ania rozpoczęła równo miesiąc temu. W ciągu tego czasu przeczytała kilka książek o kraju Kwitnącej Wiśni, nauczyła się wielu japońskich słówek i poznała wiele ciekawostek o Japonii.
