Bird Log for Kids
By the same publisher as Nature Log, here's one specific to birds. Log sheets ask for particular information, such as wing shape, color, beak shape, etc. This log contains more pages than the Nature Log, and allows bird watchers to keep a running record of birds observed (Life List), and a bird part identification page. It also contains Photo/Artwork pages on which your young naturalist can paste a picture, draw a bird, paste a photo, or glue feathers from observed specimens.
Educators have long known about the positive effects that come from journaling.
This log book by DeAnna Brandt is designed to help build the self-esteem of kids through creating something of their own, their own artwork, written observations, their own keepsake! Inside are:
Bring this log on your next outing! Play some games or do a project! Write down the bird you see, draw a picture of it! Does it have a nest? How many are there? Look closely to discover more!
Have fun, enjoy the birds!
Here’s a place for kids to record all of their nature “finds,” from observations to musings to artwork. We like these journals because they are structured, but with check-boxes and short questions, so children don’t have to write extensively, but can record what they notice or what interests them. Journals measure 5” x 8” and contain about 30 log pages, photo/artwork pages, a quick log (to keep a running record of entries), nature information, and activity ideas.
