NEA-NH Conference Session: Connecting Young Children with Nature
October 11 @ 9:15 AM - 10:45 PM
A-27 Connecting Young Children with Nature (PK-2)
Presenters: Mary Goodyear, Wildlife Educator & Lara Hooper, Drinking Water and Ground Water Education Coordinator
We look forward to introducing you to three creative supplementary educational programs for young learners, designed to connect children aged 3-7 with wildlife, trees and water: Growing Up WILD: Exploring Nature with Young Children; Project Learning Tree’s Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood; and Project WET’s Getting Little Feet Wet. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to sample activities from the three programs that foster critical early childhood skill development, while tapping into children’s sense of wonder about the natural environment. The workshop is designed to introduce participants to all three manuals, including their layout, multi-discipline connections, and the thematic activities. Participants should be ready to use the manuals to their best advantage immediately upon returning to the classroom or childcare setting.
