Rachel Carson once said: “Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts “.
My Nature Journal
Nature is full of interesting things – blue sky and white clouds, wind and frost, rain and dew, sunrise and sunset. Nature provides the living conditions and creates a beautiful life for human beings. Children live in a colorful world, everything is new to them, “Why does it rain in the sky?” “Where did the wind come from?” “Why do clouds have all kinds of shapes?”. Starfish class starts with “Tadpole Notes” to create problem scenarios and guide children to pay attention to different stages of tadpole growth.
Then we learn more about the changes in the tadpoles’ bodies at each stage of their growth through the story of “Little Tadpoles Looking for Mom”. In the extended course, we use light clay to interpret the story very well. Look, we have little skillful hands!
By watching videos, we learned what volcanoes are and why they erupt. Teacher also did a small experiment through which children could get a more intuitive experience of volcanic eruptions.
Our exploration of nature, of course, cannot be full without the observation of plants and their growth process. We planted beans, observed and recorded them every day. Kids wrote down their growth and gradual changes, feeling the surprise little beans brought to us every day.
A well-known educator once said, “Children without being close to nature have no real childhood”. In order to establish the child’s most intimate relationship with nature, teachers need to let their kids explore nature by their own. The simple materials we collected with our creative ideas can be considered as a great work!
Hey there, this is our project “My Nature Journal”. These notes carry our passion for nature exploration and our awe of nature! This expo allows us to fully feel the inspiration and creativity which are not determined by the material!
