P.L.A.Y.ful story preview (short):
Watching + Waiting + Wishing for Winter
Animals in Action
Sketching Through A Season
P.L.A.Y.-filled activity adventure suggestions (long):
- Challenge: Experiment with patience and quiet and “see” what you can “hear” visiting one spot daily.
- Super Challenge: Focus simply on one type of plant, or specific weather feature (temperature/precipitation/etc), or telltale sign of one common local animal as a way to specifically observe seasonal change.
- Super-Duper Challenge: How do you know when one season is over and another has begun? What clues do you experience on your Nature Adventures?
- Super Spectacular Challenge: Does the shifting of the season happen at the same time each year? Or does it feel like it changes a bit? Be a citizen scientist and look back in your nature adventure journals to see if there are any changes to when a season begins and ends.
