This is the second week of prompts! These are here for those of you keeping nature journals, but sometimes have trouble finding something to journal about. Use these prompts to help you get inspired, or to give you an idea for something to write about. For more information on nature journals and why you should be keeping one, visit the following link: https://www.childrenofterra.org/apps/blog/show/47382045-what-s-a-nature-journal-and-why-you-should-be-keeping-one
Nature Journal Prompts: Nov 3rd-Nov 9th
- Lazy Sunday! Take a few minutes to try challenging your creative writing skills. Write a Haiku about your favorite animal! If you don't know how to write a haiku, it's really simple. A standard haiku is a 3 line poem consisting of five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and 5 syllables again in the last line. Haikus typically use sensory language (what do you hear, feel, see, smell, taste?), and don't normally rhyme. Have fun with it, though!
- If you could live on/in any type of landscape in the world, what type would you choose and why? This is a good opportunity to compare what you know about these types of landscapes with what you would like to know.
- Is there an abandoned place in your town that could be redeveloped into green space? What types of wildlife would you hope it could support? What are some ways you could garner support for such a project from the community?
- Today is a day to think about protecting the environment from the effects of war. What are some rules different countries could agree on to protect nature and wildlife from the destruction and pollution of war?
- Have you ever experienced nature fighting back? Think back on bee stings, animal/bug bites, plant prickers, and other things of that nature. Detail your experience in your journal.
- If you could grow three plants in a special garden-a garden that requires no watering or care, where your plants simply thrive-what would they be and why?
- Do you have a bird feeder? If so, what kinds of birds visit it most often? If not, take this opportunity to design one to build or to detail plans to purchase one.
That's it for this week! Check back towards the end of the week for the prompts for next week. You can also follow us on Facebook to see the prompts daily.
