CNPS Curriculum

Opening the World through Nature Journaling: Integrating art, science, and language arts (Second Edition), a curriculum written for CNPS by John Muir Laws, Emilie Lygren and Emily Brueunig, teaches children to become keen observers of the natural world by drawing and writing about the plants and animals in situ.

We would like to keep track of who uses the material and how it is used by requesting that you fill our online evaluation after using it. We look forward to hearing from you!
