Synopsis

Learning from Nature Cross-Curricular Activities to Foster Creative and Critical Thinking by Robert Myers

This title is intended for ages 5-11. This supplemental educational resource for teachers of grades KChr(45)6 contains 50 units that explore nature through cross-curriculum lessons in science, language arts, math, social studies, and the creative arts. Teachers using this book will encourage further creative and critical thinking from students, while providing hands-on opportunities to explore and investigate. The 50 units are organised into six topics: In and On the Ground (insects, gems, grass, earthquakes, small mammals), On and In the Water (ducks, rivers, ponds, seas, water beetles), On Wings (bird habitats, bird songs), On the Air (fog, space, balloons, bubbles, music), and Personal Relationships with Nature (waking up, dreaming, flying, seasons). Nature is typically a science subject, but this book supplements a teacher's core curriculum in a variety of subjects. Teacher notes include additional activity ideas that correspond to the theory of multiple intelligences. Each unit is cross-referenced, making it easy to balance children's critical thinking skills.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
