Nature journaling allows your children to be creative with their own observations and nature studies then put those ideas down on paper. You can start your homeschool in journaling about nature as early as Kindergarten. Starting early allows our young child to learn more about hand-eye coordination, and the basic skills necessary for learning to draw what they see. This isn’t that easy for some families, especially families with kids who don’t like writing. This Beginner’s Guide to Nature Journaling will encourage you and your learners to start journaling. Starting with the outdoors and nature is a perfect way to get your kids outside and to get their minds working.
