About this Event

AN INTERACTIVE NATURE CLUB FOR CURIOUS KIDS

The Green Living Lab's Nature Explorers' Club invites children aged 7- 11 years to wonder at the natural world and encourages them to interact with their natural environment.

Children are guided to explore ecosystems through sensory games, imagination, observation, inquiry and reflection. By observing life from their unique perspective as well as imagining the perspectives of diverse organisms, children are encouraged to develop an understanding of other beings, and the processes and relationships within living systems.

Learning goals include developing curiosity about the natural world, intuition and reasoning skills, and the confidence to interact with nature responsibly.
