A Walk in
the Woods

Even if you don’t live near the
woods or a park, chances are
there is nature around you.
You can explore nature in your
world by simply sitting quietly
and observing. Take the form
below with you and sit outside
for 10 minutes and write down
or draw what you observe.

A forest is filled with some
interesting things to see,
hear, feel and do. But it
isn’t always possible to get
to the woods. This week,
Kid Scoop takes you on
an adventure in the woods.
