signs of Winter in nature

As winter approaches, the leaves of deciduous trees change color and fall to the ground. Animals begin to prepare for the cold by storing food or migrating to warmer areas. Birds migrate to the south, while bears and other animals hibernate. The days become shorter and colder, and the landscape takes on a stark and bare appearance. Snow may begin to fall and cover the ground, and icy winds whip through the air. Water sources may freeze over, and the ground becomes harder and harder to cultivate.

How to use this resource

Gather nonfiction children’s books about winter for children to explore.

Use these nature materials to kick start a group conversation about different signs of winter the children have observed outdoors already.

Gather nature objects like pine cones and branches to use along with the cards for your nature corner.

I always keep in mind that learning needs can be different in multi-age classrooms. Hence this printable contains a poster and matching cards you can use with younger children for matching.

Older children can be invited to make My Books of Signs of Winter in Nature. Color cards can be printed twice for a memory game or for 3-part card activity. They also will be a lovely addition to your Nature Table display.
