Every nature journal is different, reflecting the interests, talents, and abilities of the author. I thought I’d share a little of how we do ours.
First of all, I should warn you, my pages are all different and the style and medium in which they are done reflect my mood at the time. Some of them have content that I have already shared on my blog, and some I have not shared until now!
Anyway, here they are!
Some are traditional drawings of nature scenes.
Some are of man-made places within nature, as this sketch of Mingus Mill in the Great Smokies Park:
Some are a combination of media with digital photos, pen-and-sketches, and watercolor pencil drawings:
Some are simple:
Some are unfinished and I’ll add to them as I go along:
And some are experimental!
But all of them are uniquely ME!
Now I’ll share some of Superboy’s journal entries:
Some of his pages are strikingly similar to my own:
but they reflect his own special view:
We really enjoyed experimenting with watercolors in our journal on St. Patrick’s day!
Superboy also adds in experiments and nature activities he has done, like this nature scavenger hunt I made up for him (only part of which is shown here):
And his toad tadpole observations:
Hermit crabs: we spent some time on them when we read-aloud the book Pagoo:
Here are some pages from my 4 yo JBug’s journal:a combination of outdoors sketches, coloring pages, and other things:
Hermit crabs studied through a read-aloud of the book Pagoo, by Holling C Holling.
Here are the first pages from our stream study-Stream maps:
I would love to see how you all do nature journals!
This page has the following sub pages.
