Reflections from the Neck Down: Embodied Learning in the Classroom.
Barndt, Deborah; MacEachren, Zabe; Rigby, Heather
Pathways: The Ontario Journal of Outdoor Education, v11 n2 p11-14 May 1999

Three environmental education teachers' techniques for engaging all the senses to enhance other ways of knowing include: a comfortable classroom environment, experiencing the natural environment, playfulness, imagination, storytelling, crafting with natural materials, breathing and voice exercises, and relating to water.
