This Book Was a Tree PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

This Book Was a Tree free pdf At no time in human history have we been more disconnected with what lies outside our front doors. Within just a century, our relationship with our surroundings has transformed from one of exploration to one of disassociation. In "This Book Was a Tree," science teacher Marcie Cuff issues a call for a new era of pioneers--not leathery, backwoods deerskin-wearing salt pork and hominy pioneers, but strong-minded, clever, crafty, mudpie-making, fort-building individuals committed to examining the natural world and deciphering nature's perplexing puzzles.
Within each chapter, readers will discover a principle for reconnecting with the natural world around them, from learning to be still to discovering the importance of giving back. With a mix of science and hands-on crafts and activities, readers will be encouraged to brainstorm, imagine, and understand the world as inventive scientists--to touch, collect, document, sketch, decode, analyze, experiment, unravel, interpret, compare, and reflect.
