Nature study in the winter can be fun and it doesn’t have to be complicated. We decided to add to our Arctic and Inuit Unit Study by doing an Arctic ground squirrel lapbook.
Also, I’m excited today because it’s time to link up for The Nature Book Club.
First, grab these resources that I know you’ll love and to help you with a Arctic Ground Squirrel Lapbook and Unit Study.
It wasn’t easy finding many books, but the one we used was real helpful.

Skulls of Alaskan Mammals. 71 page pdf guide with great facts for not just squirrels but other mammals.
Furs of Alaska Mammals. 74 page pdf guide
