HNS Outdoor Hour Challenge #2 -- Shhhh!




Tall snowy tree.




Icy crunchy grass.




It's snowing! I knew it was coming and we saved challenge #2 for a snowy day. We worked on being quiet while taking a nature walk. What a perfect day to hear crunching and dripping! The kids noticed snowy spiky trees and icy leaves.

Some questions:

Why does it seem like there is more snow on the downhill slope section of the yard than there is on the steps?

Why does it snow here, but not in Hawaii? Why does it snow so much more in the North Pole?

I guess we'll be investigating snow this week!

  1. Wonderful, wonderful OHC #2. I love that you went out in the snow to do your listening...it is one of my favorite things to do. There is something about a snowy day and nature study. :)

    I love the questions too.

    Thank you so much for sharing your challenge.
