Sharing Nature, by Joseph Cornell

You don't need to be a kid to benefit from the fun activities in this interactive nature guide. Joseph Cornell's best-loved outdoor games, formerly published in the classics Sharing Nature with Children and Sharing the Joy of Nature, are now combined into one volume and expanded to include even more joyful activities. Divided into four sections which correspond to the four stages of "flow learning," the games are aimed to awaken enthusiasm, focus attention, offer direct experience, or share inspiration. Depending on what is needed for the group at what time and what place, choices include: Wild Animal Scramble, Predator-Prey, Sound Map, Caterpillar Walk, Folding Poem, A Letter to Myself, and much, much more. Cornell's love of the natural world comes through on every page, lifting the reader up, up…quite possibly out of one's chair and into a nearby forest or park. Discover what sparked a movement in the field of environmental education in this treasury of fifty-four activities, teaching tips, and nature philosophy. A great resource for teachers, parents, and anyone who wants to become more vibrantly alive, playful, and at one with the environment.
