What comes to your mind when we say “best childhood memories”? Chances are, you are thinking of all the times you played outdoors with your sibling or friends. You may have come home all flushed, exhausted, and full of dirt, but your joy knew no bounds.
And guess what? All those times, you were in the lap of Mother Nature; she was nourishing you, helping you grow into the strong, healthy individual that you are today. Isn’t that a childhood you want for your children too? Instead of being hunched over devices?
Impact of nature-based learning on kids at various stages
At a time when technology dictates every aspect of our lives, the importance of nature-based learning cannot be reiterated enough. Numerous studies prove that nature-based education impacts child development and learning at various ages.
Benefits of nature-based learning on kids from 0-5 years
In children in the age group of 0-5, when they are in a rapid phase of growth, nature-inspired learning improves eyesight and bone density. Exposure to sunlight increases Vitamin D levels and works on maintaining their dental health, and time spent outdoors enhances their hand-eye coordination and increases their overall level of physical fitness.
Benefits of nature-based learning on kids from 6-9 years
In children aged 6-9, learning in a natural environment boosts their attention span and lowers stress levels. Further, spending time learning in the lap of nature improves their social skills. They learn to recognise each other’s feelings and develop empathy as they help each other.
Benefits of nature-based learning on kids from 9-13 years
The benefits of nature-inspired learning continue as they grow into their tween phase. When exposed to nature, children aged 9-13 show extraordinary creativity as nature inspires them to discover things they would not find on the internet.
