Getting Kids INTO Nature! Read, write, draw! Those are my mantras. Getting kids outside is not only good for their health--Vitamin D, eyesight, exercise-- but for their well-being. Being in nature is calming and exciting all at the same time!
When I get kids out and IN to nature, I get them looking for the weird, wild, and wonderful all around them. I show them how to write and draw their observations with "field notes" like I do when I record stories from the great outdoors. Because, after all, great adventure begins in the outdoors!
