Read full description of the books:
When I was in high school, as a camp counselor at a since-shuttered Girl Scout camp in Utah's Uinta Mountains, this book was my constant companion. I used it to educate 6-9th grader girls about the natural environment and their experiences in it. Tucked inside are my crudely-rendered drawings we used to play "What Animal Am I?", and there's one of my childhood bookplates mounted inside.
My favorite nature games to share were the simple ones designed to increase sensory awareness: "Blind Walk", "Sounds", "Meet a Tree". One of the strengths of this guidebook is the way it is structured, categorizing the activities into Calm/Reflective, Active/Observational, and Energetic/Playful "mood" groups, helping identify the best time and place for each exercise. Each activity is also identifies what science concepts it illuminates (eg., camouflage, food chain, predation, identification), as well as the emotional knowledge it seeks to foster (eg., empathy, patience, trust, interdependence).
More than 30 years after first publication, Cornell's work continues to be relevant.
