Birds, Bats, and Butterflies. A Leaflet for Adults Who Want To Share Nature with Children. No. 1-4.
Baldwin, Mark K., Ed.
This series of leaflets provides information about nature education in outdoor settings. Each issue begins with an account of a personal experience with children in nature. Following the personal narrative is a section titled, "A Nature Primer," which provides scientific information about a topic in nature. The next section, "Ready, Set, Go" presents nature activities for children related to the topic. The final section, "Naturally Good Reading," suggests books and other resources for nature studies with children. The four issues in this series cover the following topics: (1) noticing and understanding changes in nature during spring; (2) finding bird nests; (3) understanding decomposers in the ecosystem; and (4) watching bugs in the winter. The leaflets contain illustrations on every page. (KS)
