This comprehensive trainer's set provides an in-depth look—and visual tour—of the complete Discovering Nature with Young Children curriculum. The trainer's guide takes trainers through the curriculum step-by-step with discussion plans, sample charts and forms, and extensive resource suggestions. The full-color trainer's video contains eight real-life vignettes of the curriculum in use in the classroom.

"As a passionate explorer of nature with young children, I welcome this thoughtfully designed guide to support teachers in their own discoveries with children. It clarifies the myriad details of planning and discussion and documentation that can enable young children and their teachers to re-create, in developmentally appropriate ways, what scientists really do."
—Elizabeth Jones, faculty, Human Development, Pacific Oaks College, coauthor of Emergent Curriculum and The Play's the Thing

"Teachers walked away from the workshops feeling confident that they could implement the curriculum, and they left excited, too. Science was always weak in our program. In fact, it rarely occurred. But now you can see science everywhere."
—Tina Heily, EPIC Head Start, Yakima, WA

"The teachers really enjoyed the workshops. Looking at science like this is new for them and I feel that their excitement transferred to the classroom which, in turn, made the children more interested and excited—both boys and girls."
—Minoo V., Cisco Systems Bright Horizons, Milipitas, CA

"I found it really easy to follow. Everything was very clear. Anybody could use it. The teachers didn't lose interest. They really like the hands-on parts, and they were very engaged in the reflective discussions."
—Elaine Woo, Seattle Public Schools

"I see evidence of teachers applying what they learned during the workshops. Teachers are writing down children's observations. The children dictate, notice and wonder."
—Julie Cross-Steele, Museum School, Fort Worth, TX

"These materials were very, very helpful. As the instructor, I knew just what to do."
—Cindy Addis, Thompson Early Childhood Center, Seattle, WA

"When I read through the workshops, they looked so good, I decided we needed to do them all!"
—Mindy Barbakoff, Childspace Day Care Center, Philadelphia, PA

"This comprehensive, inquiry-based curriculum builds on the 3-5 year-old child's natural curiosity about nature."
