Lisa's session will be on: Nature Study: Connecting Children with Creation
Nature Study is a wonderful way to help your children learn to appreciate both the detail God has put into Creation and the beauty of their surroundings. We will identify some of the historic elements and benefits of appreciating creation as well as how best to integrate nature study into your ongoing lesson plans. Strategies, resources and tools will be explored and you will see how to completely infuse the reality of God throughout nature study.
