Here’s a wonderful find for you from the amazing Arvind Gupta website! Exploring Nature: A guidebook on activity based nature study, by Shri Nikhil Mohan Pattnaik and Smt. Pushpashree Pattnaik was originally written for students in India, but much of it can be adapted for young learners in any part of the globe. It attempts to “present simple activities to enthuse people in thinking afresh about the environment around them. The experiments/activities described in the book do not require expensive equipment and anyone with inquisitive and sensitive mind can carry out these experiments. These are an outcome of years of practical studies and experiments by the authors and their dedicated group. This book would prove useful to children, teachers and also those engaged in science dissemination.”
While you may not live in a climate like India, there are still lots of fascinating hands-on activities and experiments to glean here. And it is fun to see what kids in other countries do in their own nature studies. Check it out! Highly recommended!
