Discover nature journaling as a strategy for enhancing learning in many subject areas. Explore the piedmont in winter and learn about the plants and animals to watch for with the coming of spring. Practice documenting your experiences using an assortment of journaling techniques including sketching, digital photography, poetry and reflective writing. You’ll increase your observation skills and understanding of the local ecosystem while gaining new ways to incorporate science, art, and writing into your teaching.
