Since moving to the country, my kids have become fascinated with all the animals and creatures in the woods around us. They love to observe them, learn about them and so we have done several studies on them in the past year.

Studying the forest or woodland creatures? Check out this HUGE list of resources including printables, crafts, activities, books & recipes! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

Even if you don’t live in the country, you can use these studies before you visit a state and/or national park. Here are some of great resources I found across the web.
