As the seasons change, many of us want to get outside and watch the transition. . . .whether that's deep in the woods or just beyond your door.
We were recently reminded of how great Mary Holland's book Naturally Curious is for all educators. It's a gorgeous guide to exploring the outside world, arranged by seasons with compelling photographs explaining it all.
Plus you can keep exploring beyond the pages of her book with her regularly updated blog! That's a new discovery for us (thank you Jo Knowles for the tip). We've done a story board with Pinterest to whet your appetite for exploring more.
Another inspiring guide for educators and their students is Citizen Scientists - the subtitle says it all: Be a Part of Scientific Discovery from Your Own Backyard.
Get these books and take them out for a walk, they aren't doing any good sitting inside on shelves.
