Nature is a giant, open-ended learning laboratory for children; it provides countless opportunities for discovery, creativity, and problem-solving. In fact, children who spend more time in nature are said to develop better motor fitness and coordination, as well as great mental acuity and inventiveness (Richard Louv, 2008).
And not to be overlooked is the importance of teaching our tamariki about how precious our native species are, so they will be more invested in protecting them in the future.
