Do trees get drinks? Does the sun give us energy? Where do animals go when it rains?
My Big World of Wonder allows teachers to heighten young children's awareness of nature and develop an understanding of our natural resources at the same time. This easy-to-use activity book explores how we use-and gives ways to preserve-all natural resources: air, water, minerals, soil, land, and all life forms. Designed for use both inside and outside of the classroom, this helpful resource contains over 80 stimulating activities organized by season-each focusing on the three core principles of conservation: preservation, restoration, and management.
Activities ideas include the following:
Matching animals with their tracks Planting, arranging, and selling a variety of flowers Examining how seeds grow Exploring how spiders catch their food Studying animals that hatch from eggs Looking at the effects of littering
