Using Pond & Stream during the winter?

    I was planning to use Pond & Stream (with the Companion) this coming school year. Looking at it, I’m second guessing my decision. We live in Wisconsin and follow a traditional school year schedule. This means we’d be in the thick of Pond & Stream when we’re in the thick of winter. I feel like my children would enjoy P&S much more when we can actually get out to the ponds near us. Could I do P&S in the fall, take a break for winter (do some Outdoor Secrets or NaturExplorer), and pick up P&S again in spring?

    Can anyone speak from experience as to how you used Pond & Stream Companion?


    I looked at the companion this spring and decided it would be great to do spring through fall.  In my opinion, the kids wouldn’t get nearly as much out of it during the winter.  We’ve been out to look at ducks, frogs, and snails so far, and we’re hoping to find some salamanders soon.

    You could definitely start it in the fall and pick it up in the spring, though.


    Thanks for your thoughts! I’m thinking I may go that route, too. I love the looks of it, but it really does seem to align better with spring-fall. I’m thinking it would make more sense to start a different study this fall. I have children ages 8, 6, and 4. This is our first year using CM. I really like the science/nature programs from SCM. I’m wondering if 106 Days of Creation or Burgess Birds would be better than Outdoor Secrets? Tough to choose!
