Winter isn’t a season we get much enjoyment out of in my part of the country. It doesn’t snow much here. It’s just cold and windy! However, I was able to dive into winter with this fabulous Winter Wonders unit study.
Winter Wonders Download N Go Unit Study
The Winter Wonders downloadable e-book is chock full of wonderful information about the winter season. We read many wonderful books, viewed video clips, and went on nature walks as we worked our way through this incredible unit study.
Some of the Activities Included Are:
During this unit, Emma and I talked about the first day of winter and plotted it on our calendar.
We watched videos of it snowing in places like Boston and Maine.
We learned how plants and animals prepare for the winter.
We made bird feeders to feed our fine feathered friends – and the occasional squirrel!
As science is a big part of learning about the seasons, we talked about snowflakes and icicles.
Emma did some winter art work and a few science experiments as well.
Nature walks were a huge hit as we looked for signs of winter and even the upcoming spring (in the buds on the trees).
