Nature Awareness Activities for All Ages
by Joseph Cornell
Sharing Nature with Children sparked a worldwide revolution in nature education. Now that classic has been completely rewritten, with many added new activities—and combined with Sharing Nature with Children II—to make a treasury of some of Joseph’s best-loved nature games for children and adults, in one complete volume: Sharing Nature.
Sharing Nature is:
- The world’s most popular nature awareness activity guidebook
- Easy and fun to use for all ages
- Perfect for parents, educators, and outdoor leaders
Essential, easy to use, Sharing Nature is nature awareness made simple. It makes experiencing nature fun. An extraordinary resource for anyone who would like to get in touch with the land, trees, and mountains. This book is a treasure trove of games and activities that tap into our natural curiosity, imagination, and wonder. Give a friend or a child an experience of Nature and wildlife that he will remember the rest of his life.
Sharing Nature takes readers beyond their intellects and into their hearts, where true understanding and appreciation take place. The nature activities in this book arouse a sense of mystery, and engender quiet attention, observation, and the possibility of revelation.
Cornell also introduces his remarkable technique of Flow Learning, showing how to match nature activities to the interest and energy levels of participants and children, and to organize them in a way that works, placing them in thematic sequence to ensure a genuinely uplifting experience.
“This is the one book you’ll need for your nature education library. Whether one is teaching a scout group, class of 5th graders, summer day camp, or teacher workshop, it’s the best planning guide for success. Sharing Nature activities are timeless and profound; I tell all my students, “Get this book and keep it in your back pocket!”Tom Mullin, Associate Professor, Parks and Forest Resources, Unity College, Maine
The book Sharing Nature is available in English and Italian.
