Connecting with Nature

Our students worked with the children, turned loose in the natural environment, to get ideas for projects that might support our goals of getting people connected to nature. Many innovative activities were devised (see Text Box 9.2).

Connecting with Nature

This book tells an irresistible story of how one child fell in love with nature, and your students can too. Taking what he calls "a nature-centered worldview," author Robert Stebbins blends activities, examples, and stories with his perspectives on the importance of dealing objectively yet compassionately with social and environmental problems. As thought-provoking as it is charming, Connecting With Nature includes: discussion of "ecological illiteracy" and the impediments that keep people, young and old, from bonding with nature; recommendations for establishing a nature-centered education program and encouraging interest in nature at home; advice on doing accurate observations and field reports and understanding natural selection; and a captivating array of activties to capture the attention of students of all ages. Even a quick glance through Connecting With Nature will make you wish you could give your students the joy of a day in the hills with the author. Failing that, you can use his book to instill a love of nature in your students, and rekindle it in yourself.
