Winter Wednesday: Winter Weeds

This week’s Winter Wednesday observations: Find weeds – observe their color, stem, shape, size, seeds and seed containers.

We collected twigs and weeds. Then we put them into ziplock bags. 

Below are the pictures of the weeds.  Can I identify them?  Nope - but we had fun collecting, comparing and drawing them.  The girls remembered what 2 of them looked like in the summer months too.



A7 and M5 – compared the weed and seeds with sketches…you will notice it was a little difficult for my scanner to scan the 3-D seeds and pods clearly.


The girls taped the weed, stem, seed pod and seeds onto their study pages, alongside of their sketches.


Don’t forget to drop by Barb’s Blog – Handbook of Nature Study to see what other’s have done with their Winter Wednesday “Winter Weeds and Seeds” studies.




  1. I agree with Phyllis...the journals are very well done!

    Great job getting outdoors this season to look for your winter weeds. I think you found some interesting subjects to look at and draw.

    Thanks for sharing your link with the OHC.

  2. Those are some nice weeds girls! Good job!
