Field Journaling - Virtual

Field Journaling - Virtual

Virtual Experience Streamed Live from the Cumming Nature Center

After a presentation, students will practice observation skills, share curiosity, and get creative. Teachers can then use the methods explained to continue field journaling with their students throughout the year.
