Exploring Nature in Your Home
Many of us are spending a lot of time at home these days and may not realize that our home can be a great place to explore nature. Sometimes the simplest observations of everyday things can lead us to notice where nature shows up. In this lesson you will go around your home, like a detective, to look for evidence and examples of nature.
Before you get started
You will need a phone or camera to take photos. If you don’t have access to a phone or camera, use a blank sheet of paper to describe what you find.
- Device to take pictures with, OR paper and pencil
Please create a photo diary of four to eight pictures that explore the following prompts:
- Look around and take a photo of “nature” or examples of nature in and around your home.
- Look around and take a photo of plants or examples of plants in your home.
If you don’t have access to a camera, describe four to eight items on a piece of paper.
