Outdoor Geography (Yesterday's Classics) (Paperback)
Excellent resource for parents and teachers who want to introduce geographical concepts to children during outdoor time. There is a graduated series of lessons in each of the six sections (Study of the Sky, Weather Observation, Plans and Maps, Heights and Contours, Land and Sea, Human Geography) so you can draw inspiration from all of them, no matter the age of your children. Exercises range from simple ones like figuring out where north is from the position of the sun to more complex tasks like making a map to scale using a surveyor's chain like the one pictured on the cover. Numerous suggestions for recording observations over the course of a year are included.
