nature journal

October 7, 2010

We found a fuzzy friend, and she started on her first nature journal entry.

I have been interested in homeschooling the Bug for awhile and in my research of techniques, schools of thought, etc. I came across Charlotte Mason’s nature journal idea. It’s all about observing and asking questions and over time developing these skills.  

Today, after she discovered the catepillar and settled down to drawing him, I asked her questions about color and texture. She made a point of giving him legs, a face, and a name.  I am looking forward to seeing how she grows with this project and having a record of her sweet little eye for detail.
