Great project for science or art, helps build observational skills using all senses. Great for any age student that can follow directions and work independently.
• You can have the students do this once or many times to create a whole book. You can print a seperate cover page, or you can simply give them the instructions page. There is room on both for them to write their name under “field journal”.
FOUR COVER PAGE OPTIONS INCLUDED, 1 color, 3 black and white.
• Take the students out into a park, land lab, or natural resources area and let them find their own objects.
• If a short trip is not available bring in rocks; fossils; shells; dried flowers, cattails, or grasses; sticks and bark; pine cones; even fresh flowers and leaves if available. In the fall, small gourds and corn make good objects for this project. Bones and skulls can also work if students are careful.
• Try to allow at least one hour for the students to really get into it and not feel rushed.
• Suggested grading is for completion only.
