Outdoor hands-on learning gives children the opportunity to discover the true magic of nature. They can interact with other life forms and inspect these "creations" from all angles and through everchanging stages of growth.
When a child shares a face-to-face encounter with nature, he or she can observe for themselves how plants and animals adapt to seasonal and environmental conditions. In making these discoveries first-hand rather than reading them from a book, children learn real lessons and become more connected to all life on our planet. In other words, children develop meaningful relationships with the life that surrounds them.
Books and online information support learning with data and science-based explanations. Netwalking seeks to connect all these pieces together into a more fully integrated learning experience.
"Come forth into the light of things,
Let nature be your teacher."
