Beyond a nature shelf: Bringing the outside in
|Building tiny forests with clay, |
natural materials and cardboard
Making costumes and pretending to be worms, turtles, snails and frogs.
If you want to read more about nature and children in wild places, check out this new book by the great David Sobel that features some work by me and another teacher at Sabot, Mauren Campbell. This represents a wonderful cycle as Marty Gravett was the first teacher at Sabot that took children outside the playground fence, and now her daughter Mauren has written about her experience with children out in the forest!
