FIAR - Owl Moon

Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen is a lovely story of a little girl and her father quietly going owling.  We enjoyed a week full of owl based activities!  We kept this week pretty low-key and fun, as we were all fighting some sinus issues.  We went on a lovely field trip to The Center of Birds of Prey during the week, primarily for W9, but it worked perfectly with our rowing!

We read a few extra books that went along with Owl Moon.  These included:
Our activities included:
  • Completing an owl coloring page

  • Painting baby owl pictures
  • Making an owl Christmas ornament
  • Making an Owl cut out picture
  • Making an owl bookmark
  • Completed an "Owls Are, Have, Can... Paper"
  • Making tubular owls
  •  We had hoped to dissect owl pellets, but honestly I didn't want to mess with it that week!  So instead we cheated and did it online
I think our favorite part, however, other than the field trip, was the food!  Per the FIAR cookbook, we had chili, corn muffins, and root beer floats.  In addition, however, we made an owl pizza (with gluten free pizza crust and goat mozzarella!  yum!) with an owl veggie tray!  Fun times!
