Nature journaling is a way of writing, drawing and reflecting through observations and art. Kids get to uncover countless mysteries and surprises as they interact with the wondrous world around them!The best part?
While your kids are grabbing their notebooks and sun hats, you know they are interacting with earth science, art, math and getting the benefits of physical education.
It’s a wonderful time to ground our kids in the steady cycles of nature all around us.
Nature Study is an integral part of the Brave Writer Lifestyle. To encourage you to add or maintain nature study routines in this unusual time, we created twenty simple prompts to help you and yours engage with nature.
Each Friday in April we’ll share five simple ideas.
