Cedar Circle Farm Nature Journal Club:

Looking for ways to keep your kids outside and occupied? Have them tune in to our Nature Journal Club. Every Monday we will share a journal prompt video - watch them below! Then, join our Education Team on Fridays for a 10 a.m. Zoom call where your kids can share their discoveries with others.

If you’re interested in participating in a Zoom meeting, email meredith@cedarcirclefarm.org for the invitation link.

Have fun, stay safe, and go explore!

Need More Ideas?

There are so many organizations out there providing engaging remote learning opportunities! We’re inspired by these creative approaches to distance learning and staying engaged, and we hope you are too!

For the artists at home:

LiveCams:

Glimpse into other worlds with LiveCams! Watch a mama eagle nesting with her babies, travel to a research center in Kenya to observe animals near a watering hole, dive underwater with manatees swimming at a state park in Florida, or just hang out in a living room full of puppies! https://explore.org/livecams
