Backyard Botanical Field Guide

This downloadable field guide provides worksheets and resources for cataloging the plants in your backyard. Fun and educational activity for the whole family!

    This is so nice to see. I have my students drawing all the time and “observational drawing” is the best. Too many teenagers draw right from the internet and copy the image and idea….discouraging!

    • Nancy, I totally agree! I think once they are introduced to observational drawing, they maybe rely less on the internet? Or maybe there’s a way to have them use the resources of the internet, e.g., to look up the name of a plant, rather than mimicking a subject or style? What do you think?
