Natural Wonders: A Guide to Early Childhood for Environmental Educators.
Oltman, Marcie, Ed.
This guide is written for environmental educators who are interested in learning more about how and why young children think and act, and how they can use this information to design developmentally appropriate programs and activities. The sections of this guide become progressively more practical and specific from understanding the basics of how young children think to evaluating the developmental appropriateness of programs. Each section contains specific topics that explain the elements of child development and what it means to facilitate young children's learning. A chart is provided at the end of each topic with information and examples of appropriate practices associated with those topics. (Author/KHR)
