Explore Outdoors ~ Cold Reflections

Does cold water reflect images more sharply than warm water? I've been wondering about this lately, as I observe the reflections in the river that runs through town. Though, at this spot the water isn't "running" anywhere - it's slowed to stillness by a small dam. Still, I wonder what will happen as winter turns to spring. I plan to return every couple weeks to snap photos of reflections and... reflect on the changing season.

This year I'm encouraging everyone to spend 1,000 hours outdoors. So on Wednesday I'll be posting ideas for nature breaks, field trips, and outdoor play. The goal: to have fun!

Teachers and homeschoolers who want to use nature breaks as field trips can grab a sketchbook or journal, something to draw and write with, and some watercolors, colored pencils, crayons, or markers. Think cross-curricular: art, language, science, math, engineering, movement, exercise! And come back Friday for some STEM book-talk.

That's an interesting question. I'll be looking forward to seeing more photos of this pretty place. Thanks for the post.
