This Awareness Challenge Card Set, designed for children in grade levels 4-5, is a fun tool for furthering your children's linguistic, intrapersonal and nature awareness intelligence.
As a whole, this set encourages curiosity with regard to all aspects of nature. Each individual card incorporates grade appropriate common core vocabulary to ask one or more questions designed to elicit a curious, problem-solving response. By means of deliberate, active engagement of the senses, personal and intimate connection with the environment is encouraged.
Highly flexible, these cards can be used by individuals or by groups during any and every outdoor opportunity -- throughout recess, during a class hike, during an All-day Outdoor Classroom, as a challenge on their way home from school, or to launch a weekend home activity.
A field journal page is provided as an aid for children in recording observations and as a means of encouraging self-awareness in relationship to Nature through creative expression. Gathered into a 3-ring folder, together with the hand-crafted Field Guide page collectibles offered in “Your Own Backyard” Wild . . . Friends Stories & Lessons, each child can make for themselves a lovely personalized nature reference. What a wonderful way to bring nature into heart and home!
