Review:

Nancy B's Science Club Nature Keeper and Tree Diary comes with a 22-page tree journal with activities, a leaf-shaped craft punch, a flower/leaf press and tweezers. The tree diary owner adopts a tree for one year, and throughout the year records details of the tree's seasonal changes along with leaves from the tree from each season.

Our eight-year old daughter loves her tree journal. She adopted a tree in the front yard and immediately began detailing all about the tree in her journal. She uses the leaf press to keep track of the leaves through the seasons, and she has been tracking the tree's changes. We've gone from late-winter to mid-spring and can attest that the tree journal definitely gets used often; she is very excited to track her tree for a whole year.

Everything in this kit is well designed, well made and fun to use. It encourages young learners to observe and analyze and teaches about nature along the way. What a great way to get kids engaged in science and nature.
