A dear friend surprised us with a wonderful gift. She gave us a copy of Jenepher Lingelbach’s Hands-On Nature. Hands-On Nature is filled with activities for exploring everything from spiderwebs to snowflakes to bees to feathers to rotting logs. Each subject is introduced with an information section. The information section is text based and definitely geared for older, school aged children. I’d say the appropriate age range is 9 or above. Then, a series of activities follows. Usually, the activities are usually 5 in number and are hands-on and suitable for a wide age range. I love this book! We are currently working on a section on Rotting Logs. We took out our playmat and some wooden figures to enact a simple play about cholorophyll.
