Children’s Nature Classes?
Because no one responds to nature like kids. Learning botany can be much more fun when paired with learning about medicinal and edible plants
Interactive Children’s nature classes last about 2 hours. Experience with diverse groups of children since 1996 has demonstrated that children want to know about plants. The more they interact with nature, the more interested they are. There are so many ways to connect with our planet, and that seems to energize and feed children so that most respond in an enormously positive way. Even city kids who have limited experience with mosquitoes, rough outdoor terrain or woods immersion come away from these classes with a nature connection that sticks with them. Children are free to ask any questions they want, are not rushed from plant to plant and are invited to participate in active outdoor games, a “tea” with snacks from nature and an art activity that incorporates what they have learned. Nature deficit disorder is one real cause of attention disorders and anxiety that can easily be remedied with this kind of solution.
