Summer Spots

This worksheet is a fun thing for kids to do in their backyard, local park or on a family walk. We found it on the brilliant Nature Detectives website.

It gives 12 signs of summer for kids to find and identify, some of which include different species of birds, butterflies and pollinators. It also includes sounds and smells for children to identify.








You can find the printable worksheet here.
