Synopsis

50 Nature Projects for Kids Fun-packed Outdoor and Indoor Things to Do and Make by Cecilia Fitzsimons

This title features fun-packed outdoor and indoor things to do and make. It is a fantastic how-to book full of fascinating projects and activities to help children learn about the environment. You can learn how to be a nature detective, make bark and leaf rubbings, collect spider's webs, make plaster casts, build a pond and grow exotic fruits. Each project helps children look more closely at nature, whether in woods and forests, fields and hedgerows, the seaside, around the garden or in a playground. This book helps children to learn about the natural world. There are plenty of educational but fun activities to enjoy, including simple experiments, things to make, games to play, and things to find. No matter where they are - in the woods, on the beach, in a field, in the back yard, out in the car, or even indoors - there is plenty of interesting things to do and see. Activities include making and keeping a nature notebook, discovering life in a tree, making a fishing net, growing plants from seed, beach combing, looking at rock pools and making seaweed pictures. The projects and ideas all involve watching, listening, building and creating, without disturbing the environment or creatures that may be found. Materials needed are collected or recycled, while step-by-step photographs will show what to make and what to look for. With an amazing range of great activities this book guarantees hours of fun for children aged 8-12.
