Art and Nature Walks for grades K-8th

Students will keep an art journal of the plants and animals they see on their walks. Students will attempt to identify their plants and animals through books and the internet. Students are encouraged to take pictures of their subjects (especially if they are moving), to help with the identification.

Students in each grade level who have the most drawings in their journals will win a prize.
