Lissy’s Mini Plan: Learning About Nature

Lissy’s Learning Plan (age 3)

Current Interests: music (singing and instruments), reading, animals and bugs

Science: incorporating science into daily life or relating it to a book

Mini Plan Recommendations for Learning About Nature:

  1. Invest in some great nature books for your family. (See below for recommendations.) We also love the Rachel and the Treeschoolers video series for preschoolers. They are a perfect way to introduce science concepts through music and sign language!
  2. Go on a leaf hunt in your neighborhood or park. First, explore the leaves with a magnifying glass. Then make leaf rubbings. Finally, try this chlorophyll experiment: http://alittlepinchofperfect.com/fall-leaf-science-experiment-for-kids
  3. Pick up some pinecones and discover how they open and close in this fun activity: http://parentingchaos.com/why-do-pine-cones-open-and-close/

Nature Anatomy is one of our FAVORITE books for learning about nature! If you can only add one nature book to your family collection, this would be my #1 recommendation.

We also love this Outdoor Book for fun family activities!

Learn more about plants with this fun 30-minute video from the makers of Signing Time! If you have visual or auditory learners, they will love the fast-paced episode with music, animation, and sign language.

Create a family adventure backpack with tools for learning about nature, like a magnifying glass, child tweezers, and a bug jar!
