The Highlights

 What is nature study?

  • Nature study seeks to find and observe science in the outdoor world.

Nature study during the winter months – heading outside can be too cold, so we take 15 minutes at the window instead!

  1. Sit down at a window, looking outside.
  2. Set the timer for fifteen minutes.
  3. Wait and observe what happens.

Nature study subjects perfect for the winter months:

  • Snow
  • Tree bark
  • Evergreens
  • Lichens
  • Rocks
  • Holly
  • Birds
  • Ice
  • Animal Tracks
  • Why leaves fall?
