Hello nature friends! Today we are going to talk about 3 important questions that I ask my kids nearly every time that we nature notebook. These are not my original ideas they came from a book I read by John Muir Laws (incredible resource!) Find his books here --> https://www.amazon.com/Laws-Guide-Nature-Drawing-Journaling/dp/1597143154/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=john+muir+laws&qid=1634766756&sr=8-3
We are observing an Oak Leaf.
What do you notice about this leaf?
What do you wonder about this leaf?
What does this leaf remind you of?
Answers don't always need to be "correct." The connections that they make in THEIR brain don't exactly need to make sense to you.
Oh the wonderful amazing results from this simple exercise that I have seen in myself and my children over years of practice. I am constantly shocked at the connections and recall that are within my children's ability. "Mom I know that isn't a Sandhill Crane because I remember I noticed before that when it was flying it held its head straight out and this one is all bendy."
Give it a try! Let me know how it goes!
