    Take a walk, find something interesting (a fallen log, a patch of moss, a beetle) and encourage your child/student to take the time to observe, draw and write about what he sees. Each page has 5 large (dotted half-line) writing lines and a space to draw a picture (about 7 x 4) at the top. Younger students can tell you what they see while you write for them and they draw a picture. Older students can write a few sentences on their own. While you are creating a keepsake, children are learning to be curious about nature and practice their handwriting skills. A few pages at the beginning of the workbook explain some classifications children can include and there are some prompts if you need a little guidance on your nature walk. You dont have to find a lush forest; a yard or park will do the trick! Take a magnifying glass and some colored pencils with you. Each page has a verse from a poem or Scripture at the bottom. Memoria Press, 36pp (26 journaling pages), 8.5 x 11 pb ~ Sara

    This large, 352-page workbook introduces over 100 animals to early elementary-aged students. Animals are divided into groups dependent on where they live, as well as animals with similar traits, giving kids a broad and diverse range of creatures from all over the world. They'll learn about animals from the Arctic and Antarctic, North and South America, Asia, Australia, and Africa as well as insects, reptiles, aquatic animals, farm animals, and pets. Additional sections introduce the student to classification systems, the definition of a mammal, and parts of mammals, giving them a jump on higher-level science. Each animal is featured on one workbook page, which includes a short written piece on the animal as well as a full-color illustration. The student is then asked to fill in the blanks in questions referring to the passage. Along the way are 12 pull-out-storybooks on selected animals, which are beautifully illustrated, and give the student more in-depth information on the animal. Other activities such as coloring pages are also included, as is an answer key. - Jess

    From the same publisher as, The Complete Book of Animals (#19546), this condensed version offers appealing graphics and full-color background pages, which makes it a little livelier than the above. While the font is smaller than its predecessor, which accounts for most of the page difference between the two, children with visual difficulties may appreciate the darker font within the pages of Exploring Animals. Content-wise, most of the book is identical, but this version leaves out just a few sections here and there, most being "fun" pages like coloring and activity pages, and also the animal facts and fun section that provides additional review worksheets of the topics covered. One nice benefit of Exploring Animals is the fold-out poster is a map of the continents for identifying the natural habitats of the animals studied, as compared to the Complete Book of Animals poster which focuses on endangered animals. Includes stickers and complete answer keys. If you are looking for a science workbook to provide a base for further hands-on explorations and like the idea of less busy work, this book will be ideal for you. sc. 256 pgs. ~Deanne

    More structured than a nature journal, this "outdoor workbook" is a great tool for families and students who prefer some guided instruction and inspiration as they observe, record, and learn from nature throughout the year. It features a varied, interactive format that kids won't soon get bored with, great forms for observation you can print from the publisher's website, and lots of terrific activity suggestions. The book is divided into three parts: "How to Be a Naturalist," "Learning the Sky," and "Exploring Nature." The first part introduces students to the skills and tools of the naturalist, provides suggestions and forms for setting up a nature journal, offers ideas for observation and appreciation (listing species that live in your neighborhood, making a "nature arrangement" or using observations to write a nature poem), and even includes quick drawing lessons that all culminate in an "field expedition." Because weather plays such a large role in nature, it gets its own chapter, and students are encouraged to draw the sky over different days and times, "read" clouds, draw a weather map, learn why we have seasons, play with shadows, keep a moon journal, discover nocturnal animals, learn three constellations and write a sky poem. The majority of "Exploring Nature" is organized by month (January-December) and provides specific activities and mini-lessons on seasonal nature topics. In March students will learn about the spring equinox, check for life in small pools of water and streams, turn over logs and rocks, draw birds, observe and draw budding twigs, and much more. In August, the focus is on water (the book assumes a family vacation here!) and students learn about the water cycle, find out more about a local stream or river, experiment with water, learn about water creatures, find sources of water in nature, keep a nature journal on vacation, and sleep under the stars. Several forms are provided for all months, including "Nature Notes" and "Nature Quest" forms, and a blank page for a "Picture of the Month." You can print more of these online for ongoing observation projects. Quite a few helpful resources for parents can be found in the appendix, such as safety information, suggestions on how to use nature journals in teaching and how to use the book to meet state curriculum standards, a bibliography (including suggested field guides and books for kids), recommended websites and a list of nature organizations. If you're new to nature studies and looking for some time-saving forms and activity suggestions, this is a resource to consider – and its reasonable enough you may want to get each child their own copy. – Jess
