Description: 

Taking a daily or weekly nature walk is an excellent way to stimulate a child’s appreciation for the ecosystem. It can help develop children’s observation skills through repeated experiences in nature. During this session, participants will learn how to engage children in learning during nature walks by asking them about what they see, hear, smell or feel and encouraging them to explore the texture of things like rocks, dried-up leaves and the bark on trees. During nature walks, children can begin to see the patterns of nature and understand the concept of habitat, like where dandelions grow best, where birds find food and why butterflies always fly around certain plants.

This course addresses the following age band(s):

  • Early childhood - middle (36-60 months)
  • Early childhood - late (5-8 years)
