This book contains a gazillion time-tested ways (give or take a couple quadrillion) to put into practice thoughtful ideas. Parents, teachers, and camp staff will find oodles of engaging, enjoyable, entertaining, encouraging, enticing, educational exercises exploring the connection between nature and human nature. You'll find a balance of outdoor and indoor invitations to connect with the natural environment; a treasure trove of individual, small group, and large group activities; guidelines for how participants can get the most out of these activities; and humanistic education strategies to help people of all ages in schools, camps, youth groups, religious institutions, YMCA’s, adult education, families, and other settings
This book will help you:
- Promote mindfulness, awareness, and respect for nature and the environment
- Develop communication skills
- Build a sense of community
- Clarify personal, social, and environmental values
- Nurture self-esteem.
As icing on the cake, this book will leave you laughing… and thinking… about important environmental issues through John McPherson’s internationally-syndicated Close to Home cartoons.
