Getting Started Suggestion:
If you already own the Getting Started ebook, complete Outdoor Hour Challenge #9-Small Square Study. Complete your small square study under an oak tree…mark your square and then look to see what you can find. Perhaps divide your journal page into “oak tree items” and “other”. Create a list of things you find in your square that are related to the oak tree like acorns, leaves, twigs, etc. Use the notebook page found in the Getting Started ebook to record your result if you wish.
