My Favorite Place

What's your favorite place in nature? Write a few sentences about it in your field notebook. Then head outdoors and spend some time in your favorite place - and if you don't already have one, find one! It might be a bench in a park, like Gabi's, or a cool plant growing on a building, like Oliver's. Notice the plants and animals that live there. Document it with photos or sketches. You might even return to your favorite place at different times of day, or during different seasons, to watch and record how it changes.
