Introduction to Exploring Nature
Early Childhood Today, v20 n8 p10 Jun-Aug 2006
Children are fascinated with the world of nature. From the tiniest of seeds to the highest of birds, they wonder "Why?" "How?" and "What can I do with it?" This paper provides intriguing nature activities that provide a solid starting point for expanding children's thinking and learning. Through these activities, children will be building skills in important curriculum areas. They will be developing observation skills as they bird watch and make rainbows, experimentation skills as they explore seeds and carrots, prediction skills as they wonder what ants will eat, and measurement and recording skills as they watch weeds grow!
