Exploring Plants, Insects, and Animals: Opportunities for Cultivating Empathy in Children
Belz, Paul
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n205 p67-69 May-Jun 2012
Imagine what a child can learn by slithering across the ground like a worm or snail! Children learn many things from their connections with beautiful living things such as flowers and rabbits. Many adults are surprised when young scientists identify with "yucky" animals and plants. A child who connects with creatures ranging from the cuddly to the unfamiliar can become a citizen who loves and protects this amazing planet and all living things. Good garden teachers help children become ecologically responsible citizens! (Contains 2 online resources.)
