Printable Bug Study Journal
This printable bug study journal provides children with the opportunity to really think and learn about a bug! They can choose the bug they want to study (without finding one in real life), or they can go on a nature hunt to look for a bug that they might like to learn more about!
We love looking for bugs under old logs or pieces of bark, looking for frogs in streams, and chasing butterflies around open fields. I realize that this might not be for everyone, so it’s perfectly find to study your bug from a distance! (or even online :))
