Exploring nature with children plays a big part in a child’s life as they explore the world around them. Being outdoors gives many opportunities for the child to explore new and different objects. Exploring outdoors has so many benefits for children from physical exercise, improving gross and fine motor skills, building on natural curiosity or learning about texture, size and colours.
Exploring nature and the environment allows children to use their own senses, mind and body to learn more of their own world. Digging muck to find worms, catching spiders and ladybirds or learning about a caterpillar’s transition to a butterfly are all part of that experience.
We have some wonderful products that will assist Primary School Teachers in their teaching in the area of nature. This includes many products from the Insect Lore range where children can experience raising their own butterflies from caterpillars. It also includes insect jars for collecting and exploring the bugs and insects that live in the nature around us.
