bookmaking theme: field journaling!



after reading from thoreau at walden, we talked about field journaling (this was a helpful resource). we discussed how field journal work is not only scientific, but also artistic. we looked at different examples of journals and the kids loved seeing how different each journal looked- some scientists used watercolors, some drew very elaborate drawings, some even made collages! 


we tested out our field journaling skills by selecting an object in the classroom to study.... unfortunately my camera ran out of battery so these are the only photos i was able to capture!
