Thanks to our Prairie Science Class partnership, together we developed an innovative approach to teaching in the outdoor classroom. We call it The Compass to Nature, and we want to share it with you!
You can view and download The Compass to Nature booklet.
The Compass to Nature is free for anyone to use. It works for children. It works for adults. It works anywhere, any time of year.
Just as a navigational compass enables us to guide our way outside, the four points of the Compass to Nature provide unfailing direction for all who seek to lead others in the development of a connected, caring relationship with the world we live in. The four cardinal Compass points are Place, Phenology, Naturalists, and Journals, unified by the magnetic Sense of Wonder.
