Journey to the Heart of Nature: A Guided Exploration
This book contains a guided exploration of a special place in nature. Although geared towards young adults (ages 12-17), the book may also be appropriate for older children (ages 9-11), and adults. During a series of five visits, short multi-ethnic stories with matching activities help the reader to discover the area's uniqueness and beauty by using their senses and careful observation. Five chapters have the following themes: (1) begining to explore a special place in nature; (2) ways to become familiar with animals and plants that live in the area; (3) receptivity to nature; (4) ways to preserve and care for the site and to share its special features with a friend; and (5) personal reflection during an evening/morning or overnight visit to the site. The book is written as if a young person is doing the activities alone, however the activities and stories can be used with groups. The final section of the book contains a leader's guide with a group activity for special situations, a group song, and 13 resources. (LZ)
