My Nature Journal and Activity Book: A Girl's Guide to the Wild
Get outside, explore, and learn! Take this journal out to the backyard or a city park, or bring it along on a family camping trip or to summer camp for fun indoors and out!
This interactive field journal and activity book for girls focuses on the outdoors, nature and science, and is organized by season, with lots of room for creativity.
• Fun pastimes that teach outdoor concepts: word searches, fill-in-the-blank games
• Outdoor activities: packing lists, scavenger hunts, sketching
• Journaling pages: open-ended questions, poetry prompts, lists
• Logs: weather logs, creature, bird and bug counts, field notes
The goals of the journal are to encourage girls' love for the environment, to inspire girls to protect animals and nature, to get girls engaged with STEM, and to empower girls to feel comfortable and competent outdoors.
