My Secret Plant

Updated: May 4

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!

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