Outdoor Hour Challenge – Winter Tree Silhouettes

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

In this challenge, be sure to look for the list of four ideas to use when completing this challenge with your children. You can also work on your Winter Tree Study and your Four Seasons Tree Study.

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.

  1. I just wanted to take a moment an thank you for this blog. I have recently begun to accept that homeschooling will be the best option for my kiddos and knowing where to start is daunting. Finding your blog today is a blessing.

  2. Welcome Deidre,
    I hope you will join us for some nature study. :)
