Coal Oil Point Reserve Journaling Lesson
This activity lesson aims to engage 4-6th grade students to use all of their senses to explore the beach habitat and record observations. This lesson was developed for Kids in Nature visits to Coal Oil Point Reserve, but may be adapted to any beach or other habitat. Students explore to discover the sights, sounds, smells and textures of the environment. The Kids in Nature (KIN) Environmental Education Program promotes the aspirations and achievements of students in underserved schools in Santa Barbara and Goleta, California by providing quality environmental science education and experiences through place-based field trips, mentored by UCSB students in the Nature and Science Education Practicum, utilizing hands-on activities to bring K-12 students outdoors and to UCSB. The Kids in Nature program is supported by the UCSB Coastal Fund, UCSB Office of Education Partnerships Faculty Outreach Grants (FOG) Program and the Mosher Foundation.
