What student doesn't love exploring the outdoors! Create a sense of place and awareness of stewardship of your local area by taking students on an outdoor adventure to a nearby forest. Students can learn about winter ecology, animal adaptations - hibernation, migration, and resistors/tolerators, and the signs of winter. In this field guide, students will look for evidence of animals including tracks, as well as looking at differences between trees and making maps from a bird's eye point of view. This field guide will have students making observations, asking questions, and having a good time.
*Note: You may want to alter the field guide to represent the trees and shrubs you have in your area. Print out pages and then cut in half for a smaller booklet.
