BLOG- NatureStudyThumbnailNow that it's summer, we all want to spend as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors. Free play is great, but nature study is a lot of fun too, and it's easy. In fact, nature study can inspire new ideas for free play time!

During nature study, kids practice their powers of observation and learn more about the natural environment that surrounds them.

Take those growing powers of observation one step further. Have your kids journal about what they see. A nature study journal requires kids to write descriptions of their observations, and this casual activity will vastly improve their descriptive writing skills.

Clear and specific written descriptions are vital to almost all types of writing!

There are a variety of ways to practice and improve descriptive writing through nature study. Please watch the brief video below to learn a number of nature study writing ideas to use through the summer and fall.
