Made With You in Mind
This class exposes children to earth science, art, math, and the benefits of physical education.
Plus, Nature Journaling plants the seeds of other academic skills. The kind they’ll grow and nurture through middle school and high school—until they bloom in college one day!
Those ‘seeds’ include
- Acting as questioners and observers
- Harnessing the authority of scientific language
- Doing research
- Choosing which details are relevant to share or sketch
- Being an expert! They are the authoritative source on their local park or pond
Our class will bring A NEW VISION to the neighborhood for your kids. Paying attention in this new way will bring to light the mysteries and surprises of the world in their own backyards.
What's a Family Class?
Nature Journaling is what we call a "Family Class." Your children are enrolled in the class and will be the ones doing the activities. The adult at home interacts with the instructor directly in the classroom, posting student writing and asking questions on how best to facilitate writing. We'll guide you on how to partner with your particular writers and grow your skills as a writing coach!
