Autumn is the perfect time to start an oak tree study with your children. You may even wish to invite some friends along to complete this nature study activity alongside you. Do your research ahead of time and discover which variety of oak you have in your neighborhood and then take a look at the acorn for that particular tree. Use this information to go on an oak tree hunt. Once you find your tree, use the suggestions in the Handbook of Nature Study lesson linked below to create a meaningful study of your oak tree. Please note you can use the Handbook of Nature Study lesson with ANY oak you have in your area, whatever the species.
