Q: How Do You Get Children to PAY ATTENTION During a Nature Walk?

A: Bring the digital camera along!

I brought ours on last week's walk, and EVERYONE was looking for and taking interesting photos, from vistas
to reflections
to close ups.
Lots of close ups.It even got a little tiresome stopping for photo after photo (and sharing the camera), but we were all enjoying the discovering. It was one of several cool, damp days, so we saw many kinds of mushrooms.Sharing the camera meant even the less skilled photographers got their turns.Rebecca took this picture of a daddy longlegs.We took close to 100 photos! Here are a few more for now--I took just one or two of the following.
