Learning Opportunities: Outdoors and Growing Things

-

Planning to engage and interest children

Planting a seed and watching it grow can be a truly magical experience for young children. It can give them a real sense of awe and wonder – as well as developing the skills of nurture and patience. There is no better way to learn anything than through your own first-hand experience. You cannot teach someone how mud feels when you squelch it between your fingers, how it feels to have ice-cold rain trickle down the back of your coat or how the air smells different as the seasons change. These things have to be experienced first-hand and the more opportunities children get to work and play outdoors the more opportunities they will have to learn.

This book provides a store of practical ideas focusing on gardening and growing, enabling educators to plan ahead with confidence.
