Just being outside doesn’t always guarantee a connection to the natural world. An awareness of the environment needs to be embedded within the curriculum, and with climate change and sustainability being such important and urgent issues, this book is a timely and much needed resource for early years and primary educators.
Introducing nature pedagogy - an approach that seeks to respect and support the rights of children and the planet together. Nature pedagogy encourages all educators to embrace eco-logical choices and to use nature as the location, resource and context for learning. The author draws on international research and case studies to offer a way forward, to embed green teaching and a nature-based pedagogy in practice and transform teaching with young children.
