Experiences in Nature: A Pathway to Standards
Benson, Jennifer; Miller, Jennifer
Young Children, v63 n4 p22-28 Jul 2008
The authors show how teachers can use nature explorations as a personal guide in implementing early learning standards. They describe five outdoor experiences of children in age groups ranging from 20 months to 5 years. A chart specifies which of the Nebraska state learning guidelines and Creative Curriculum goals the experiences meet, across the social-emotional, physical, language, and cognitive domains.
