Nature Journals encourage children to observe, think, question, write and draw about things in their environment. Learning to notice, record and analyze natural phenomena and patterns are important skills that promote both writing and critical thinking development. Teaching children to use their Nature Journal often empowers children to slow down and draw their own conclusions about what is going on in the world around them.
