This “Nature Notes Journal” is designed for anyone interested in observing and recording daily and seasonal changes in the natural world. It is especially useful for documenting the free flow learning of students and developing an emergent curriculum. It’s multi-year format makes comparisons and references easy as several years can be recorded on same page for each day.
The Journal is interspersed with journal prompts, photos, and newsletter excerpts inspired by ongoing journals of life at Cedarsong Nature School's Forest Kindergarten program. By using this Journal throughout the year for several years, you can gain an intimate understanding of the seasonal changes that influence your activities and the recurring themes that emerge.
