Nature Study Meets Citizen Scientist

The Great Backyard Bird Count is coming soon!  This is a very popular activity for many AHE families.   For those that may not be familiar with this event, this is a fun way to incorporate nature study into your program and make a contribution to science at the same time.

The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of  what the bird population around the world looks like.    Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts.  Don’t worry if you know next to nothing about birds, the Great Backyard Bird Count website is full of resources to help you learn bird ID skills and what birds to look for in your area.  It takes as little as 15 minutes on any or all of the days of the event.    Log on to your free online bird checklist account and your numbers will be added to the worldwide tally.

Click on the image to head over to the GBBC website where you can learn more about the count, download activity pages and tally sheets and learn more about birds in preparation for the count.

My Place in Space – Lessons on Stewardship

Stewardship is the theme of the adult Sabbath School Bible Study guide this quarter.   Here is an excellent resource from the General Conference of SDAs that teaches the concept of stewardship to children.  These lessons go beyond the stewardship of money -they direct children to the Bible to look at a broader idea of stewardship.  The lessons can be useful at home and in a Sabbath School or Children’s Church setting . Take a moment to browse the free downloadable files to find out more.  Click the image or link below .
