About Curious Kids Nature Journal. . .
Full of journaling prompts and activities focused on the natural world, this companion to the bestselling Curious Kids Nature Guide will encourage kids to get outdoors and engage with nature.
This outdoor journal and activity book, organized by ecosystem, is the perfect complement to the Curious Kids Nature Guide. Kids are encouraged to use their senses to explore nature in their own backyards and beyond and make observations.
Over 100 color and scientifically accurate illustrations help kids more easily look for and identify plants and animals, as well as natural phenomena, such as animal tracks and nurse logs. Writing, drawing, and activity prompts inspire kids to record and track their observations.
For kids who want to take their exploration and journal recording to another level, kid-friendly citizen science projects are noted for activities like bird counts, insect tracking, and marine debris tracking.
