Five Easy Nature Study Suggestions for the End of April

  1. Just get outside and take a walk! Informal nature study done while spending time together as a family is often the most meaningful. Get outside for a quick walk when you have a few minutes to spare. Printable Scavenger Hunt available from Hearts and Trees: Spring Nature Walk. You can also use my free Signs of Spring Notebook Page to follow up your walk.
  2. Keep track of temperature for three days in a row. Record it in your nature journal to compare with future months. You can print and use my free Printable Weather Chart Notebook Page.
  3. Observe clouds over the course of a week. Print out a Cloud Chart (scroll down and there are two choices). Record your cloud observations in your nature journal with sketches.
  4. Complete a Seasonal Weather Notebook Page.
  5. Finish the grid suggestions from the Apri 2012 Handbook of Nature Study Newsletter. Note: You will need to subscribe to my blog to receive the download link for the newsletter at the bottom of the next blog entry email.

  1. Thank you for this – all in one spot!

  2. I discovered your blog at some point while looking at homeschooling blogs and I want to say thank you for all the work you do! Your blog is amazing and has helped me enjoy getting aside with my 9 month old, 2 year old, and 4 year old. We will begin homeschooling kindergarten in August and nature study will be part of our science. 🙂

  3. So glad to help you all out in the nature study area…enjoy!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these. Do you keep the sheets in a separate notebook that just has nature things in it?
