Switch off from today's busy digital lifestyle with projects to help you stop and appreciate the world around you Slow down. Simplify. Let go. Connect with Nature does just this. Each turn of the page through spring, summer, fall, and winter will lead to a new discovery and a new project to help you weave nature and creativity – and some wild fun – through your everyday life. Make teas from foraged herbs, go on a picnic, weave a wreath of wildflowers or turn sticks, stones, and feathers into wall hangings, dreamcatchers, and necklaces. Rediscover a childlike joy of nature through more than 75 creating, cooking, making, and doing projects. Connect with Nature is the ideal way to put down your devices and spend time with your friends, your family, and, of course, yourself. It will entice you to step outdoors, breathe the fresh air, and settle into a slower pace of life, a life where the satisfaction of making things by hand means you connect with your natural environment every day.

This text contains 25 Project-Based Learning (PBL) lessons written by a combination of undergraduate preservice teachers, inservice teachers, and graduate students. Everyone who wrote a chapter strives to improve STEM education to help others implement standards-based STEM instruction that takes learning in isolation to greater accountability through integrated and meaningful tasks that answer the question every teacher dreads: When am I going to use this? The PBLs were written to implement in middle and high-school classrooms. All of them are interdisciplinary in nature. We have divided them into six themes: construction and design, water, environment, mixtures, technology, nutrition and genetics. Each lesson contains a “schedule at a glance” and the “well-defined outcome” so you can quickly see how a particular PBL fits into your curriculum. Objectives are listed along with STEM connections written as objectives. We have included all materials needed and then each day of activities including an imbedded engagement, exploration, explanation, evaluation (including rubrics), and extension. We have tried to include everything necessary for successful implementation. This practical book is the perfect companion to the handbook for learning about implementing PBLs: Project-Based Learning: An Integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Approach – second edition.

This flexible resource combines character education with analogies to powerful stories from nature. The heart of each of the book’s 25 lessons is an engaging story, written to kids, describing a particular animal or plant and its distinctive qualities. Busy classroom teachers will like this book’s accessibility and flexibility. Kids can read a story individually or in groups, or follow along as the teacher reads it aloud. Accompanying each story, teachers will find several activities—most of them quick, easy, and requiring few supplies—that further investigate animals or plants and the connections between their qualities and human behaviors. Every lesson examines several main character traits, providing starting points and sample questions for discussing and exploring analogies between events in nature and human acts of character. Features include a chart cross-referencing lessons to specific character traits and a list of further resources. Digital content contains more than 75 reproducible forms, a complete bonus lesson, and a color photograph of each animal and plant.
