Child writing in science notebook

Nature journaling is an opportunity for students to increase their observation skills, ignite curiosity and engage in natural phenomena as scientists do. This activity introduces students to why scientists use Science Notebooks, what information/data are included in their entries, and how it is recorded. Students are then prompted to select a natural object of interest to them, take time to slow down, observe, and use the information presented to complete a nature journal entry in their Science Notebooks.
