We enjoyed another adventure yesterday at the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney! We made our way on the train and enjoyed a walk through the city to get to our destination.
The children were eager to explore, and run around the open space with their friends. They became superheros and butterflies, using their magnifying glasses to discover the different plants and insects in the gardens.
Interacting with natural elements allows children to engage with all their senses, stimulating their creativity and imagination. The children were fascinated with how plants and insects grew, moved and their different shapes, sizes and colours. The natural environment provides endless opportunities for a child’s problem solving, scientific inquiry and numeracy skills.
Engaging with the natural environment also supports children in showing care for the environment, becoming caring members of their community!
