Childhood and Nature: Design Principles for Educators
Description: In Childhood and Nature, noted educator David Sobel makes the case that meaningful connections with the natural world don't begin in the rain forest or arctic, but in our own backyards and communities. Based on his observations of recurrent play themes around the world, Sobel articulates seven design principles that can guide teachers in structuring learning experiences for children. Place-based education projects that make effective use of the principles are detailed throughout the book. And while engaged in these projects, students learn language arts, math, science, and social studies as well as essential problem-solving and social skills through involvement with their communities and nature.
