Enjoy cold weather science with this free winter nature study printable packet! The six activities are perfect for children of all ages and will help with observational skills.
When homeschool families think of nature study, winter might not be the first season that comes to mind. But like any other season, winter is a great time to explore plant and animal life, the weather, and many other aspects of nature during the colder months.
Families explore biology when they look for animal tracks in the snow. Observing trees that have lost their leaves or retained their needles is biology, too. Experiencing the snow or ice and learning about how water changes states of matter exposes children to topics of physics and earth science.
