Hi everyone, this is Elise with day 3 of activities exploring "The World Around Us." Today I encourage you and your kids to put away the devices, turn the TV off, and get outside for some fresh air and exploration. I live in the suburbs, and at first glance, there might not be that much nature to explore. But, out on my nature walk today I saw a squirrel, dozens of birds, tiny flowers popping up in the grass, trees starting to bud, and more. It also started to rain on my walk and the smell of the fresh rain was amazing.
While on your nature walk you are going to look for and gather certain items with your family. Each person should create their own nature walk bag to take on the walk. Use this bag to collect items as you go! Before you head outside, watch this video with your kids to learn more about nature.
