Welcome to Conservancy Kids!
Nature Journaling Exploration
Look Up!--Nature Journaling the Weather
Have you ever looked up at the sky and noticed big, fluffy clouds? Or maybe the sky was completely clear and a washed out blue. What have you noticed about the different temperatures where you live? Maybe sometimes it's super hot and everything feels dry. Or other times the temperature says it's cooler, but the air feels heavy and sticky. By documenting these observations through nature journaling and combining them with facts you can find (temperature, percent humidity, time of year), you can come up with explanations for the weather. Join Julia as she helps us start journaling about weather!
Resources to Help You Discover
Just typing in your city name and "weather" into Google search can also give you lots of information about the weather in your area!
Sharing (virtually) is caring! If you enjoy these newsletters, please pass them on to family and friends.
