We did our first Outdoor Hour activity in just about forever last week! I was very happy to get back into it. We had planned to do the snow study, but decided instead to wait for a snowstorm. It seemed like a good day to do the Winter Nature Walk/Scavenger Hunt.
Here is what we found.
|A tree that has lost all its leaves|
|A tree that still has leaves|
|An evergreen tree|
|Buds on a tree- a sugar maple|
|Animal tracks in the snow, on top of a frozen stream-maybe coyote or fox|
|A bird-chickadee at our backyard feeder|
|A feather-we had a hard time finding one, so this is a turkey feather found earlier|
|Fungi on a tree|
|A plant with berries|
Then we moved on to the "things to feel" section.
|A smooth rock|
|A tree with smooth bark-at least compared to the one below!|
|A tree with rough bark|
|Something wet- a little trickling stream-and slimy-wet leaves!|
