Nature Education with Young Children: Integrating Inquiry and Practice
A thoughtful, sophisticated teacher resource that blends theory and practice on nature education, children’s inquiry-based learning, and reflective teaching. The book’s guiding conceptual framework is founded upon the integration of four key ideas for effective and transformative nature education. These include: (1) The power and value of equity and access to nature education; (2) Effective teaching encompasses child development domains and integrates early childhood education curriculum; (3) Children learn best through inquiry-based and child-centered teaching; and (4) Powerful teaching is founded upon teacher inquiry and reflection. Implementing nature study is one critical way that educators can integrate more science learning in an active, discovery-based manner.
