Outdoor Hour Challenge – Weather Grid and Weather Sounds

Outdoor Hour Challenge:
This week your outdoor time should be all about the things you hear during your winter weather walk. Take along your Weather Grid (from the December Newsletter) and see if you can find your three weather related words for your nature journal. Observe the wind and which direction it is coming from. Listen for the sounds of weather.

  • Rustling leaves in the wind
  • Splatter of rain
  • Crunch of ice or snow
  • Clap of thunder
  • Breeze in the tree tops

See if you can find some of your own weather sounds! 

If you are currently in your summer season, you may be interested in the Summer Weather-Using Your Senses challenge from the Summer 2010 ebook.
