Outdoor Hour Challenge Newsletter – Reptiles and Amphibians Edition

Handbook of Nature Study Newsletter April 2013 Cover

April 2013 – Reptiles and Amphibians

We have arrived at a study of reptiles and amphibians just in time for perhaps some spring observations of tadpoles, peeping of spring peepers, and the awakening of our more cold-blooded nature friends. Whether this study is of real-life subjects or preparation for future observations, I am confident that your children will benefit from learning more about reptiles and amphibians using the Handbook of Nature Study and the Outdoor Hour Challenge.

Contents of this edition of the newsletter include: 

  • 4 encouraging articles to help with your study of reptiles and amphibians
  • Contributors from India, Australia, and England – such a privilege to hear from so many kindred spirits from around the world
  • April Study Grid to help your monthly nature study
  • Show and Tell from OHC Participants
  • Recommended study links and field guides

  3. Excited for this one! It will encourage us to go follow the evening croaking sounds for sure.

  4. I’ve tried looking in all my spam folders, but I can’t find that I’ve gotten any emails since January. I tried to resub, but it says I am already subscribed. Is there anything I can do differently and check? The only difference is a new computer… but the email is the same and same program…

  5. If you email me with the email address you subscribed with I can check it out for you…let me know.
