Science Notebooking by the Pond

Since the cool-down of fall, we've been getting out a lot more often, and it is calming to my nerves.  Recently we went to a nearby pond and drew anything we pleased.  We only walked a quarter of a mile, but it took us 2 hours to get out of there.  We lost track of time.  I rarely do this, but it was worth it.

Here are some examples of what we did that day!

Leaf drawing and identification and some insects

Leaves covered with packing tape to keep intact

I hope we gave you some inspiration for your own notebooks!



  1. I need to do this stuff more often. The notebook looks great!

  2. Nice! I need to get back to more of this. We go on treks, but I seldom remember to have the children write what they've learned! I love notebooking, but fail to make the time for it. Thanks for the reminder and the beautiful pictures.
