Nature Log for Kids
Here's a place for kids to record all of their nature "finds," from observations to musings to artwork (photos or drawings). We like this journal because it's fairly free-form, not requiring a child to fill in a multitude of information, but allowing him to take the lead in what he wants to record. Our only qualm - it's not larger!
But at least it won't be too bulky to tote! Book is half-sized (like folded standard pages), and contains log pages, photo/artwork pages, a quick log (to keep a running record of entries), log tips, and ideas for related nature activities. Sidebars contain interesting activities that may stimulate observation of particular plants or animals - just in case your woodsman needs a little prompting. pb, spiral-bound.
Educators have long known about the positive effects that come from journaling.
This log book 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, do an experiment, make a craft! Write down what you see, draw it! Does it make a sound? Does it move? How many are there?
Have fun, enjoy nature!
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.
