STEAM education is coming to elementary! Teach your kindergarten and primary students observation skills while creating nature journals from paper lunch bags.
*CCSS & NGSS aligned*
This lesson encourages observation skills and scientific drawing by allowing students to investigate autumn leaves using magnifying glasses. Students can then collect their own leaves and record observations in their hand-made nature journals. They will love this activity!
Included in this lesson:
*Video and instructions for creating nature journals
*Leaf mix-up game to encourage careful observations
*Possible extensions and literacy links
**Your feedback is important to me. Please review this product.**
*Next Generation Science Standards: K-LS1-1, K-ESS2-2, & K-ESS3-1.
