Do any of you do a hs'ing nature journal with your kids? We'd like to start one but I'm not a naturey person (although I'd like to be) and I can't really come up with any goo ideas.
Some of the things I thought of so far is:
1. Using our rain gauge to measure the rain fall.
2. Track any extreme weather conditions.
3. Take pictures of birds.
I really need some help with this....does anybody have any good ideas?

We used to track the weather each day when the kids were younger. Each week, the boys rotated who was the "weatherman" and that person was responsible for telling us what the temp was a different times if the day and recording it along with the weather conditions and how much rain we got.

Ds is in kindergarten. He is doing Saxon 1 math which requires him to fill in a space on a monthly weather graph each lesson so I don't do anything like that for his nature journal. Basically for it he can collect things and tape or glue them to pages (feathers, leaves, etc.), he has done tree and leaf rubbings, he draws pictures of things he sees (trees, birds, etc.), etc. It's pretty basic for now.

I'm not a homeschool mom, but one of the things we like to do here is watch and feed the birds. Track and journal what different birds eat and how they eat (ground feeders, hanging feeders). We've let this activity go a little bit but from doing it in the past, the things my daughter has learned have stayed with her and she can name most of the birds that come around and knows a little about them...
We still do feed the birds and have learned what different things to put out to attract the birds we want.
