A Kid’s EcoJournal Series

A Kid's Winter EcoJournalIf your children love the outdoors and also love to write, they may enjoy A Kid’s EcoJournal series by Toni Albert.

There are four of these books (spring, summer, fall, and winter), but they all follow a similar format. After some tips on exploring and writing about nature comes space for entries. Each entry has blank lines for writing, a selection from the author’s nature journal, and an activity.

A Kid's EcoJournalBesides learning how to observe and record observations, children will:

  • Make maps.
  • Feed worms.
  • Make plaster casts of animal tracks.
  • Grow sunflowers.
  • Capture insects.
  • Keep an aquarium.
  • Dry Osage oranges.
  • Make compost.
  • Press leaves.
  • Make winter decorations.
  • Build bird feeders.
  • Experiment with snow.

A great gift, and a hands-on way to teach children to observe and write about nature! Who knows? Maybe it will spark a lifelong journal-keeping habit.
