This series allows children and parents to delve into the natural world through nature awareness games, outdoor play and focused field exploration. Parents learn roles and techniques for facilitating nature play at home. Sessions are small group field trips offered in person with monthly seasonal activities. One session for each age group offered each week: Acorns Class ages 3-7; Saplings Class ages 8-12. Instruction is scaffolded and content sensitively differentiated for each age group. Activities enrich language arts, science, social studies and math skills. Activities and themes are the same for all sessions within the month offered. Ages 8-12 activities include tree study with dichotomous key, bio survey and nature journaling.
