Participants of Teen Nature Journal Foundations will learn how to use the nature journal as a tool to observe, think and document the nature they see!
I am an experienced educator, as I have spent over 25 years in the education of children. I have worked for 10 years as a public school teacher. There, I taught various ages of children with a variety of educational needs, through my work as a certified special needs teacher & intervention specialist. During my college summers I worked in camp leadership serving inner-city children in an outdoor setting. I currently home-school my 2 teen boys and have for the past 15+ years. I have taught nature study classes at my home-school co-op, taught art at a private school and I also work with local parks as a certified volunteer naturalist in historical interpretation and nature education. I have been a distance educator on Outschool since 2016.
Participants will be given a weekly assignment to do in their journals and asked to share their nature journals entries every week. Students don't have to share thier journals but are encouraged to to support their growth as a journaler.
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 weigh 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! 6. Simple items you may have in your house : A few rocks, magnifying glass, paper towel, table salt, water color tray & paint brush ( low-cost)
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
