Want to take your students outdoors and still complete that language arts lesson? Make a nature journal, grab this guide, and go!
Included in this handy little booklet are twenty-four activities to help students engage in observation, description, and writing through first-hand interaction with the natural world. The first section focuses on development of the senses and can be pulled out and used any time of the year. These activities are appropriate for all ages. The second section is geared more towards the writing craft and builds upon itself. These activities are appropriate for later elementary, middle, and secondary students.
Hopefully, these activities inspire you and your students to take the classroom outside. Enjoy your time, and don’t forget your rain jacket!
