Garden Activity
Make a Field Journal

Field journals can be ideal tools for prompting kids to document, reflect on, and otherwise extend their garden experiences. And when kids create the books from scratch themselves, they are even more inspired to dig in!

Reflection and observation are important values to Māla‘ai’s garden classes, and the garden educators always provide opportunities for students to share their findings with their peers.
