One of the activities that I have planned for the Fall season is participating in Project Squirrel. It’s a really simple animal observation project to do with the kids and only involves 14 questions. I think my younger students will really enjoy it.
And if we’re going to do the observation, we have to include some fun learning, right? My plan is to do a one day squirrel unit study. I’ve started collecting a list of free squirrel learning resources that we can use and thought I’d share them with you!

We’ve always enjoyed watching squirrels (except when they were helping themselves to our fruit trees!), but have never studied the interesting little creatures before. I hope you’re able to find something useful from this free squirrel resource unit!
