I have the best intentions to do an organic nature journal with them every summer, but it gets so hot that often I let them free play while it is nice, and I’m left struggling with things for them to do inside. This will take the concept and make it a fun indoor activity that strengthens their knowledge of exotic animals, writing skills, and drawing skills.

 

You will need:

“Wildlife Anatomy” by Julia Rothman

Access to Youtube for drawing lessons

Access to a place to watch Wild Kratts (currently on Amazon or Netflix) 

Notes:

These notes are not law. If you want to do one, but not the other, please don’t think the list at the bottom is a checklist. I wanted to create somewhat rounded resources to learn about animals, but don’t want this to become rules to follow. If your kid wants to learn more about an animal keep going, but if your child is tired and. done by task one, don’t force it. Full disclosure finding lessons that had Art hub for kids, an entry in Wildlife Anatomy, and Wild Kratts was a task so four lessons don’t have all three. 

Art Hub for Kids

The resources I picked were as realistic as possible. This means they are also often the harder option. If you have a younger learner try a simpler version. If you have someone older they may want to draw straight from the “Wildlife Anatomy” book. I find it fun to always label the parts of the animal when we are done.

What to write

At my kid’s Charlotte Mason co-op/school, they ask themselves these 3 questions about whatever they are observing. Younger kids usually pick one of the questions to write a sentence about.

It reminds me of…

I wonder…

I notice…

Charlotte Mason would have encouraged kids to learn first about what they can see and touch, but these animals are a bit more exotic on purpose. These are animals my kids are really excited about right now. If you want to stay in keeping, then a trip to the zoo may be a way to incorporate some of these animals.
