Nature Notebooking

What is Nature Notebooking?

It CAN be a nature scrapbook, but don't stop there! 

Record, document, analyze, track, and diagram

A way to "narrate" your nature finds!

builds discipline and observation skills

trains you to see the outside differently

What does Ms. Mason recommend?

Leave your books inside! 

Draw what you see, not what you imagine.

This is a narration - how can you increase your vocabulary? (research, diagrams, outside materials)

More text than art!
