Summer on the Farm

by admin on July 27, 2016

Nature is wonderful. It has variety, beauty, interest, change, cooperation. We teach children to look for variety among trees, insects, and types of animals. Then they can categorize them. We also teach them to look for beauty in nature, and think about what they may find in terms of art, and language. They also learn to take care of nature. They learn the needs of plants and animals, and that we are the guardians of our planet.
