Connecting with nature : a naturalist's perspective by Robert C Stebbins( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of my earliest memories is of a warm day, a field with many grasshoppers, a shallow creek with cold water, and the joy of a day in the hills with my parents. My dad had gone fishing and I was free to wander about nearby. It was summer in the Gray Pines foothills of the Sierra Nevada, near Chico, California, where I was born. Along the creek I found a turtle! I had hoped someday to have one as a pet. I ran with the wondrous creature cradled in my hands to show my mom. I was enthralled with its bright eyes, the feel of its claws, and its cold body as it struggled to free itself from my grasp. So began a lifetime of connecting with nature.And so begins this amazing book-an irresistible story of how one child fell in love with nature and your students can, too. Taking what he calls "a nature-centered worldview," author Robert Stebbins blends activities, examples, and stories with his perspectives on the importance of dealing objectively yet compassionately with social and environmental problems. As thought-provoking as it is charming, Connecting With Nature includes: discussions of "ecological illiteracy" and the impediments that keep people, young and old, from bonding with nature; recommendations for establishing a nature-centered educational program and encouraging interest in nature at home; advice on doing accurate observations and field reports and understanding natural selection; and a captivating array of activities to capture the attention of students of all ages: imitating animal sounds, quieting lizards, tracking animals, photographing birds, and playing hide and seek with owl calls.Even a quick glance through Connecting With Nature will make you wish you could give your students the joy of a day in the hills with the author. Failing that, you can use his book to instill a love of nature in your students-and rekindle it in yourself
