Drama and Movement activities provide an excellent medium for environmental programming for children and youth becuase they are directly connected to the body and all of our body-based perceptions and senses. Drama and movement help to foster body awareness. Opening up to our bodies and our senses can bring us closer to nature – our own and that of other species. A child’s natural way of learning and exploring the world is very much related to dramatic play, movement and tactile, kinaesthetic awareness. That is why drama and movement activities should be integrated into environmental education for children.
- Learn hands on activities that integrate drama and movement into environmental learning.
- Take home a manual of the activities shared for easy reference and future use.
- Design your own program suitable to your site and age group of the children you work with.
