Repeat Observations and Stories of Change
This lesson teaches students the art and science of keeping a field notebook. Students learn the basic methods of keeping a field notebook and the types of information and observations to record. Using examples from the A. B. Williams archival collection as inspiration, students make repeat observations of the same place or object. These observations track changes over time and are used by the students to summarize observations and to tell a story of change about the object or place they visited.
