With the weather getting prettier, it’s time to get out in nature!!! We love spring time! Here in Florida, it’s not too hot or humid, and the mosquitoes aren’t biting as much as they do in the summer. The birds are chirping, things are growing, and there is so much to see and learn. This makes for the perfect time to put the books down and do some nature studies!
Check out all these amazing Spring themed nature study and nature journal ideas we’ve gathered for you!

Nature Notebooks/Nature Journals:
I like to keep a nature notebook for our nature studies. Our Nature Notebook always starts with a nice, sturdy 3 ring binder. You can use this to store printed notebooking pages, any nature themed worksheets, and even nature copywork pages and Bible verses! I also like to keep little collectibles that my children have collected on nature walks and store them in page protectors with the top taped shut with clear packing tape. We also store a nature journal in one of the pockets of the binder to keep everything together! This makes a wonderful scrapbook/portfolio of your studies.
