|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
California Native Plant Society (CNPS)'s offers this spectacular Nature Journaling Curriculum that will work in a multitude of settings from school yards, camps, and nature centers to family outings. It is geared primarily towards children age 8 and up, and meets California state standards for grades 3 through 7 but works just as well for teenagers and adults. This is the 2nd edition and has many improvements and a wonderful new section of poetry writing activities that fit hand in glove with nature journaling.
The 2nd Edition Opening the World Through Nature Journaling: Integrating Art, Science, & Language Arts, is written for CNPS by John Muir Laws, Emilie Lygren, Emily Breunig, and Celeste Lopez. It teaches children to become keen observers of the natural world by drawing and writing about the plants and animals. In a set of nested games and activities, students gain confidence in drawing and writing to as a way to gather information. Using a set of key prompts, children and adults also discover a language to create poetry from their observations. They employ these skills and tools to put together a field guide, make treasure maps, and to write poems and stories.
It is important for us to know how and if we are meeting our goals and to report back to our supporters. We would like to know what schools, organizations, and groups are interested in the curriculum and the settings in which they use it. For this reason we request your name, organization, city, email address and how you expect to use the materials. CNPS will not share your email address with other organizations or entities. We encourage you to evaluate the material and share with us any extensions or stories of your experiences using the curriculum.
You may download the 2nd Edition curriculum at no cost. Softcover copies of the curriculum can also be purchased through the CNPS Store.
