Teaching Nature Journaling and Observation.
Leslie, Clare Walker
Taproot, v13 n2 p8-15 Fall-Win 2001
Drawing in a nature journal connects students to their immediate environment, integrates many disciplines, and encourages various styles of learning. It is not necessary to draw well; nature journaling is about learning observation skills, not drawing skills. Equipment, getting started, and various exercises are described. Fifteen resources are presented along with suggestions on how to find others. (TD)
