Outdoor Hour Challenge – Autumn Turkey Nature Study

Outdoor Hour Challenge

Turkey Nature Study

Wild turkeys are a funny bunch of birds. When we lived in California, many times we saw turkeys in the woods and sometimes trotting down the back roads. They make a funny sound as they move through the trees and poke around on the ground for tidbits to eat.  Then, if you get lucky, you’ll see the male turkey strutting his stuff and displaying his beautiful tail feathers!

If you have a wild turkey or even a domestic turkey to observe, you’ll enjoy the suggestions in the lesson in the Handbook of Nature Study.  Another suggestion is to watch the videos in the original challenge to get a taste of what turkeys are all about and then read the Handbook of Nature Study lesson and finish with a nature journal page with your children.

If you have access to the ebook, there are two notebook pages to choose from for your nature journal.

Alternate study: The most important thing for any nature study challenge is to go outdoors for even just fifteen minutes. You may wish to complete the November World notebook page after your nature walk.  There’s also an autumn bird notebook page available in this download: Autumn Notebook Pages.
