The kids learned that squirrels will typically gather and save a lot of their food all year round but this is definitely true when it comes to the autumn time. They really like to bury their food! When you see them collecting all their nuts just before winter it is because they are getting ready for winter months and they want to make sure that they have enough food to last through the winter.
The kids also learned all about acorns. Acorns are nuts that form on mature oak trees. The older the tree, the more acorns produced! Squirrels love to eat acorns.
Sunflowers got their name because the flowers turn toward the sun!
