winter nature study

You may not think winter is a good time to do a nature study with your kids, but even with the cold temperatures, there's a lot going on in nature, and plenty to learn about. Keeping a nature journal is a fun idea, where kids can keep track of things they see outdoors with their own drawings and descriptions. You can make the journal as simple or as detailed and you'd like, with everything from pencil and paper drawings to crayons, stickers, or oil pastels. There are lots of library books about winter weather, animals in hibernation, how to feed the winter birds, animal migration, and more. The list of possibilities is endless!
