String Safari

Create and explore a "tiny world" with a loop of string in your yard!


This is the fifth activity in 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.
