Noticing Nature – Nature Prompts for May 2016

Noticing Nature - Nature Prompts for Children and Their Families: May 2016

Each month here at Green Acorns you can find simple prompts to encourage you and your child to notice nearby nature.  They could be done while on a hike, right in your backyard, or even amidst the busyness of everyday life.

Taking the time to notice will build a connection with nature and help develop a sense of place.  It strengthens skills of observation and reflection.  It promotes empathy.  It can enhance abstract and critical thinking.  It can lead to stewardship of the natural world.  The list of benefits goes on an on…  And this all can be accomplished in little time with only a little effort.
