7:30a.m. to 3:30p.m.
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
Nature journals are a place to generate, expand, document, and explore observations, ideas, and reflections. They can help students create, test and refine their understanding of scientific explanations of the natural world. Nature journaling requires no special artistic talents and no special scientific knowledge, just a desire to slow down, look carefully, question, and wonder. In this one-day workshop, participants will be introduced to basic drawing techniques, ideas for recording observations, and possibilities for extending journals into deeper explorations across multiple genres and disciplines. We’ll spend time at Desert Museum exhibits and observing desert plants and animals in the classroom, considering how the nature journal allows the process of inquiry to flourish for any age student, and for any topic learners might pursue.
Teachers will receive a $50 stipend and 7 hours of PD credit
Limited to 15 participants per session
