The Season of Rest
In the cycle of life, many animals need a season of rest. Choose an animal you would like to know about. Learn what it does during the fall, winter, spring, and summer and journal about it in your Nature Study Journal.
Collect some evergreen branches about 6 inches long. Paint one side with poster paint or roll on water based printer’s ink. Carefully lay the branch, paint side down, on a piece of paper. Lay an other piece of paper or paper towel on top of it. With your fingers or a clean printer’s roller, press firmly to create an image of the branch on the paper below. Then carefully remove the branch. Evergreen prints make beautiful Christmas cards and decorations. Paste a small example in your Nature Study Journal and date it. Also indicate where the tree was found from which you took your branches.
