Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This supplemental educational resource for teachers of grades K–6 contains 50 units that explore nature through cross-curriculum lessons in science, language arts, math, social studies, and the creative arts. Teachers using this book will encourage further creative and critical thinking from students, while providing hands-on opportunities to explore and investigate. The 50 units are organized into six topics: "In and On the Ground" (insects, gems, grass, earthquakes, small mammals), "On and In the Water" (ducks, rivers, ponds, seas, water beetles), "On Wings" (bird habitats, bird songs), "On the Air" (fog, space, balloons, bubbles, music), and "Personal Relationships with Nature" (waking up, dreaming, flying, seasons). Nature is typically a science subject, but this book supplements a teacher's core curriculum in a variety of subjects. Teacher notes include additional activity ideas that correspond to the theory of multiple intelligences. Each unit is cross-referenced, making it easy to balance children's critical thinking skills.
