Overview: This field journal requires students to go outside, find different plants, and make observations. It provides students a chance to be reflective and scaffold the concepts learned in the classroom to that in the field. Students can work alone, in pairs, or in small groups to complete the activities in a 40 minute class period. Students should be provided with flexible tape measurers that are at least 3 ft. long, a clip board, and colored pencils. Some vocabulary will need to be discussed prior to students completing this field journal.
