This is a sample Nature Journals activity.

Today, think of some things that start with the letter S that could be the focus of a nature investigation where you live.
Here are some examples:
stars, snail, seasons, things that are squishy or small
• Go outside, look around and choose one of the things from your list.
• Spend some time sketching pictures of your letter S item in your nature journal.
• On your journal page, make sure to include location information. WHERE did you find it?
• Include some timing information. What season is it? What time of day?
Here’s an example: A shiny star sparkles above the sea on a hot summer night.
•If you can, add some of the actual items into your journal (like a small shiny shell glued to a page of your journal).
Would you like to share your nature investigation with other Smart Pegs? Take a photo or a short video of your journal entry and add it to the comments section!
