Winter Weather Nature Study

“Out in this, God’s beautiful world, there is everything waiting to heal lacerated nerves, to strengthen tired muscles, to please and content the soul that is torn to shreds with duty and care…. nature study is not a trouble; it is a sweet, fresh breath of air…She who opens her eyes and her heart nature-ward even once a week finds nature study…. a delight and an abiding joy.”
Handbook of Nature Study, Anna Botsford-Comstock

This week we are going to get outside and observe our January weather right in our own backyard. This is a quick and easy study that everyone can do regardless of where you live or what your current weather is outside.

First go to your Member’s Library. There are two printables for you to use as a follow up to your Outdoor Hour Challenge. Choose the activity that fits your needs best. See the images and instructions below.

January World Know Your Own Backyard Notebook Page

Know Your Own Backyard – January: This notebook page is a simple activity for your family. Take a few minutes and make some backyard observations and then follow up with a sketch and a short description of what you observed.

My Winter Weather Notebook Page

Winter Weather notebook page will help you make three weather observations on three different days this month. Afterwards, your child can make a comparison of the winter weather to their memories of summer weather in your backyard.
