    IMG_4676 Well that didn't go as planned ;) This was my first attempt at drawing anything in years. I need to get some drawing pencils. I didn't think to add color yet. Drawing did force me to notice details I would have missed-such as the streaking on the belly, and the way the feet sit on the branch. Details I would not have have likely noticed if looking at the live bird.

    I hope to do something similar with my middle school students! We don't have the land, but there's a small lake up the block we can easily go to. I can't wait to get them started!

    As a teacher, I love that you see this as a way to continue your education!

    1. I love nature and art and wanted to get back into drawing (something I haven't done much of as an adult). This seemed a great way to combine the two. Further, I teach middle school science and want to introduce journaling to my students. I think they would really benefit from this. 2. I like a clean page (no lines). I also like how some of the journals make boxes to contain, define their data. I am curious about what I see and would also utilize field guides to confirm what I'm seeing or learn more about it. I like the use of color, but am lousy with water color. So I might stick to colored pencils (for now).
