Class Experience

Participants of Nature Journal Basics will learn how to use the nature journal as a  tool to observe, think and document the nature they see! 
I am an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist with a background  in public education (10 years).  I home-school my two children and often nature, science and art themed classes to co-ops, scouts and other groups of children. (15 + years)  I have taught for more than 25 years and I am passionate about nature and education!   
Participants will be given a weekly practice prompts to respond to in the online classroom and will be given an
assignment to do in their journals and asked to share their nature journals entries every week in the classroom. 
This is what you need: 1 A nature journal : A size that works best for your child to hold comfortably but not too small that it limits their entry. Something without lines and a thicker weighA box of colored pencils ( 10-12) If you get a large set then you end up spending lots of time in the field digging through your colored pencils and t paper. I like spiral bound because it will stay open when they are in the field. I like this one...https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pen-Gear-MAKE-YOUR-OWN-COVER-SKETCH-DIARY-5-5-X-8-5-AFTER-PERFORATION-70CT/600225113 2.Pencils : Several sharpened pencils with erasures 3. Colored Pencils: small set 12 to 18 count. You want something with not many pencils because you don't want to be digging through a lot of pencils in the field. We want to keep things simple and accessible. 4. Hand held non-electric pencil sharpener. Again we are going with simple. 5. A small bag to carry your journal and supplies in! If everything is together and ready to go... then your are more likely to take it with you when you go out in nature!
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All ages and abilities are welcome in this course. However, please be advised that some children will need parental support in the way of attention during class time, reading the instructions and scribing as needed.
