How to Think Like A Mushroom
Format: Kindle Edition
Looking for the freshest new book exploring what nature can do for kids and what kids can do for nature?
How to Think Like a Mushroom provides parents, caregivers, and teachers year-round discovery-based activities for getting kids outdoors, exploring, and gaining knowledge about nature. The 24 child-centred activities –from making sun tea to carving your own spoon, to creating a nature symphony — coded by difficulty, time, and supervision required, are tied to Grades 1 to 6 curriculum. Inspiring ideas by educators help you deepen your outdoor experiences whether in the city or in the wild.
Kids themselves were the impetus, and this book lovingly captures the most fun and engaging experiences kids have had at the camps, events, and school visits over the past three years at ClearWater Farm, a living laboratory helping kids grow, on Lake Simcoe 45 minutes north of Toronto.
All proceeds go to helping the work of the regenerative farm that is the flagship project of the Ontario Water Centre, a registered educational charity.
