Time: 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. 

Format & Length: In-Person, 6 hours

Audience: 3rd-8th grade educators, formal and nonformal, but all are welcome

Join us at the Hatfield Marine Science Center to experience and explore nature journaling, a flexible, engaging, and adaptable teaching tool that helps students develop both scientific (NGSS) and social-emotional competencies. Using Hatfield Marine Science Center's unique resources, we will practice close observation, inquiry, and connection-building using a series of nature journaling prompts. We will also practice giving feedback on journal entries to promote a growth mindset, model outdoor facilitation strategies, and discuss how to incorporate nature journaling in any learning context.

Dress for a 1.5-mile exploration along a level trail. Bring a notebook and a pencil, water, bag lunch, and a camping chair (if you have one). We will spend some time indoors and some time outdoors during this workshop.

Offered at no cost to Oregon educators. PDUs available. Substitute reimbursement available on teacher workdays.
