In the groove of nature study

Does anyone experience this, or is just us?  Suddenly we seem to get into the groove of getting the hang of putting entries into our nature journals!

After reading a chapter from an old Enid Blyton nature book that talks about recording weather, Tiger and I made our first weather record chart in his journal, and he has been diligently entering his observations into it.  Weather recording is so obvious that it completely slipped my mind that it can be a totally valid subject for nature study!

Also included in the pages are weekly observations of animals, birds, and plants.

It was meant to be a robin, but maybe Tiger was thinking of a hedgehog when he was drawing...

This post is linked up to several blog hops, where you can see what other homeschoolers have been busy with.  It is also linked to the Homeschool Showcase #96 and Science Sunday.


  1. Very nice nature journal pages!

  2. Great idea to journal nature. Love it!

  3. I've tried nature journals before, but couldn't ever find that groove, but I know what you're talking about becasue I've found it with other methods.

    Found you today on the Hip Homeschool Hop. Come see us at Layers of Learning.

  4. We haven't hit the groove of thigs with nature study yet but it's on my list of things to do

  5. That's one thing I haven't done with my kids. Silly thing, really. We live in the country, we see deer right in our driveway next to the porch, we catch & study bugs...but I haven't had them do a nature journal! I'm going to get them started on will help the younger ones with their writing. Thanks for the idea!
