I am so glad you are here and ready to embark on using prompts in your nature journal practice!
Nature journaling is a fantastic way to help children of all ages become great observers of the world around them. Journaling helps us learn about our gardens, connect to what’s happening outside our homes and schools, and express and assimilate our understanding of our natural world.
I created these nature journal prompt cards to help get your, your family, or your students’ creative juices and nature connections flowing! When we become observers of our natural world we notice all
kinds of exciting things, obvious and subtle, we connect to place, and become more engaged members of our ecosystem.
When we document them like in a nature journal practice, we begin to notice natural details and patterns, thereby helping us understand the systems of nature and the webs of which we are all part! And that's good for both people and planet!
