Welcome to the internet home of the first ever full-length Mud Puddles to Meteors activity guide! This project is one that has been in the works for us for quite some time, and we couldn’t be happier about finally being ready to share it with you.
When we first set out to choose a topic for this first Mud Puddles to Meteors activity guide, migration stood out immediately as something we both wanted to delve into. It is, after all, a topic which captures the imagination and interest of nature lovers both young and old (just look at the natural history section in your local library for evidence of just how much!). And the reasons for this fascination make good sense. It is astounding to think that animals are constantly in motion across our planet, often in tremendous numbers and over incredible distances, driven by ancient instincts that lead them back to places visited by unknown generations before them. And as one begins to really consider the scale and subtleties of animal migration on Earth, the effect is dizzying. If you ever find the need to convince someone of the absolute brilliance of the natural world, migration is a great place to start.
In the pages of this guide you will find a balance of activities and information designed to help you and yours learn about animal migration in a variety of ways.
- There are over 50 pages of information, activities and resources
- The guide covers a wide range of topics including literacy, science, art, math, weather and more
- Live links to help you navigate to great internet resources are found all throughout the guide
- Lap booking and note booking templates are at the back of the guide, with pictures and graphics to use in projects
- The guide is geared toward elementary age children in the 5-12 age range (with some parent help for the younger crowd)

To give you a sense of what you will find inside the guide, we thought it would be great fun to share a sample activity. Click the link below to download the Salmon Stream game we designed for you:
In the game you and yours will swim upriver, learn about the obstacles salmon face (and hopefully overcome them!), and make it to the spawning grounds! Simply click on the link above to download the game and get a little sample of what to expect in the guide.
