We have been utilizing nature journals in our homeschool from a very early age. They have helped our children with writing, art, noticing nature detail and much more (-we have not done any nature journalling, but thinking we should start).
Simplifying Nature Study, great for homeschooling or after school learning! Nature study day is our favorite day of the homeschool week. Keeping it simple makes it much more enjoyable. Great idea for Janice and Nate right now.
