December At Home Quest-Keep a Weather Log!

The Winter Solstice is on December 21st. On this day, the Earth's north pole reaches its maximum tilt away from the sun, and the northern hemisphere experiences its shortest amount of daylight. With winter on the way, you have probably noticed a change in the weather! To earn 5000 points this December, keep a weather diary for one week (if you skip a few days, that's ok!) Track things such as the high and low temperature, precipitation (is it raining? Snowing?), wind, and sun. Use pictures or words, whatever works best for you! Need some ideas?
