Developing a connection with nature is an integral piece of childhood. Through interactions with the natural world, children develop a sense of wonder, calm, joy, and fascination. In this interactive session, we explore place based learning with children of all ages. We discuss ways of moving past challenges, engaging stakeholders, and exploring simple and meaningful open-ended play ideas and learning invitations that bring children outside and bring nature in. Participants will leave with a nature play idea kit filled with strategies and inspiration, including ideas that require little to no preparation or materials and ideas that include Aboriginal perspectives and understandings.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
