Write a short poem about today’s weather. Describe your dream backyard. Draw a picture of your favorite animal’s eyes. What emotions do you feel when you think of a river? That is a sampling of the hundreds of activities to get your child thinking and sketching about the natural world.
With bite-sized facts about plants, animals, weather, life cycles, and habitats woven throughout, My Year of Nature provides an opportunity for your student to reflect on the wonders of nature.
There are 365 drawing and writing activities that can be done in any order, or you can skip a couple if you wish; there are more than enough prompts here to fulfill an entire school year. My Year of Nature—what a fun approach that will inspire your child to be creative every day!
Doing one activity every school day will complete 180 art activities, half of what is available. Pick through the options to find and finish your favorite projects. Or, if you prefer to have every spot filled in, complete two activities a day.
