"Nature at Your Doorstep provides a way to tap into children's curiosity, wonder and upper level thinking skills."Teri Consetino, Science and Children, April 1998
"This book... provides ways for teachers to share nature with their students. It is well organized and easy to follow....The data sheets are informative and interesting to the students. . .The activities are appropriate for schools with large woodland areas as well as those with just small grassy areas. My students were interested in the investigations and enjoyed collecting the data. This book would be a useful addition to any resource room. The activities strongly support the standards in science, mathematics, language arts, and social studies. The materials needed to teach the lessons are easy to obtain and are available in most classrooms. A sample ten-day lesson plan is provided for those teachers who want more direction."Teaching Children Mathematics, Jan. 1998, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Inc.
“Very good! I will definitely use these lessons in a classroom. Thumbs up!!”
“… a very hands-on and exciting way to educate.”
“I will definitely recommend this workshop to all educators regardless of their content areas. These lessons would incorporate much more than science.”
