FC: Krishawn's Natural History Adventure | BY: Aunty Brittany
1: I hope that spending time in nature with you will help you to develop a love for the world around you and become more active. By spending more time outside, you will start to develop a more creative state of mind. Bonding in nature will help to create a better attachment between us. Playing will help you adapt to different life styles. I wish that interacting with nature will help you better in life with stress management and control. With unstructured play, you will be able to have self-regulation and be able to respond to the world around you better. Learning about the history of plants and animals in the area, will hopefully help to develop a sense of empathy and curiosity as well as sensitivity towards nature. Cooperating with your peers will help to develop trust.
