Nature Study: Free Nature Study Journal Printable

I love nature study, as do the children that I teach. I follow the amazing ‘Exploring Nature With Children‘ curriculum. Best explained by the author Lynn “Exploring Nature With Children is a complete, year-long curriculum designed to guide you, step by step, through an entire calendar year of nature study. Completely self-contained, this book has all the information you need to make nature study happen regularly for your family”.

I really, really love this curriculum. It is perfect for home educators but equally good for teachers who lead outdoor learning or nature studies.

A fantastic way to record your child’s nature study is in a nature journal. There are loads available online, but if you wanted to make your own, I have created a free printable. It includes a front cover and an entry page. Simply print out and then print a new entry page each time you need one. You can then put all of your entry pages into a folder or get them bound!

If you would rather buy a nature journal, you can find some here:

Usborne Nature Journal

Nature Journal For Little Explorers: Kids Nature Journal/ Nature Log Activity Book; Fun Nature Drawing And Journaling Workbook For Children

If you decide to start a nature journal with your child, you don’t even need to go very far. Find a special spot that you can keep returning to throughout the weeks and months so that you can observe the changes that occur. This could even be in your back garden.
