Brand New! Outdoor Hour Challenge -Moose Nature Study

The moose is one of those animals that many of us never get a chance to see in real life. It’s large body and huge antlers make it a very distinctive and interesting animal for most children to learn about using resources you can find online or at your public library.

Here are just a couple of ideas for a moose nature study to get you started:

¨ For younger children, listen to chapter 36 in the Burgess Animal Book for Children, featuring the moose.

¨ Learn about antlers on this page: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service—Antlers.
