Outdoor Hour Challenge:
This week we are going to be on the lookout for interesting tree silhouettes in our own yard and neighborhood. Here is the link to the previous challenge: Winter Wednesday – Tree Silhouettes
Special Activity:My Tree is a Living World
This may be a great week to revisit this activity:
My Tree is a Living World
My Tree Is A Living World: Record all the living things you find in the tree you observe. During the winter, it may be a challenge to find living things on or in your tree but that is a valuable lesson for children to learn. Comparing trees from season to season is a simple way to discuss the differences you observe.
Getting Started Suggestion:
If you already own the Getting Started ebook, complete Outdoor Hour Challenge #4. Use the ideas in the challenge to start a focused study of trees with your children. Use the accompanying notebook page to record your outdoor time and your focus area.
