Comstock's Handbook of Nature Study is our FAVORITE resource.  If we go for a walk and notice blue jays, then we come home and look them up in our book.  If we see clover in the field, we come home and look it up in the book.  She provides a ton of questions to guide the children as they think and observe.   

First Field Guide: Birds

The National Audubon Society First Field Guides are small enough to toss in a backpack for a nature hike but comprehensive enough to cover the most common birds you will find in nature.  We crack open our field guides on the spot when we see a bird we've never identified before.  
  
We also have First Field Guides of Insects and Trees and highly recommend them! 


Strathmore Visual Journal

When we come back inside we make a few notes in our nature journals.  This year I'm trying these, but for the past few years a simple watercolor notebook has been perfect.  We jot down the date, a brief description of what we saw, and then my kids sketch a picture.  (I snap a photo on my phone when we are outside so they don't forget details).  They like to use watercolor paints to paint their sketches.  

We only add things to our nature journals 2-3 times a week because I want my kids to do their best sketching instead of treating it like a daily chore or something to check off a list.
