Nature journalling and seasonal observations by the middle school students. The 6,7, and 8th grades have locations in the Parker Forest that they visit regularly to calmly and creatively reflect on the world around them. Using pictures, diagrams, and creative writing, they document the status of the forest. They also collect weather data and wildlife data to share with a citizen science program. The middle school will select their best works to post to a Pinterest Page, and they are focusing on the skills that help them continually produce their best work!
Below are examples from student journals.
