NJC, Episode 1: Introduction to Nature Journaling

Nature Journaling is a dynamic and exciting way to train yourself to observe, ask questions, and develop your creative thinking. In this video, we introduce how to use words, pictures, and numbers to record our observations, questions, and connections. We also give recommendations about how to set up your own nature journaling kit.

About The Nature Journal Connection Video Series: In partnership with the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco (https://creativity.org/), I worked with a team to produce a series of 40 free, 10 to 15-minute recorded nature journaling workshops featuring fun and engaging activities that build the skills of a scientist, naturalist, artist, and observer. We released the first episode on October 27, 2020, and we will release one each week through July 2021. Appropriate for children of all ages as well as adults, this program connects science, language arts, math, visual arts, critical thinking, mindfulness, wonder, curiosity, and joy.
