My Secret Plant

Updated: May 4, 2020

We're excited to begin our series on nature journaling based on practices and activities from "How to Teach Nature Journaling" by John Muir Laws and Emilie Lygren.

Why Use a Nature Journal? - From Laws and Lygren

- To slow down, pay attention, and experience awe and wonder.

- To develop students' creativity and critical thinking skills.

- To develop students' science identity through authentic science practices.

- To nurture connection with nature.

- To build an inclusive culture of curiosity in the family or classroom.

- To support interdisciplinary learning.


My Secret Plant challenges you to journal about a plant in such detail that your partner could use your journal to go find your plant!


Open the activity here!


Snap a picture of your completed journal and send it our way on social media! We'd love to check it out!
