«Think about all the ways trees differ from one another. Consider their height and width, their bark, their leaves, their branches. How many different types of trees can you find in your area? Look around and notice their shapes and forms. How are they alike? How are they different? Do all trees look the same? Are they all the same size? Try this: Stand like a tree. Sway like a tree. Hug a tree! Get to know the trees in you area and appreciate them.»
Excerto do livro I Love Dirt! de Jennifer Ward, com sugestões de atividades para fazer ao ar livre com as crianças, consoante as estações do ano. Coisas tão simples que já sabemos, mas, poucas vezes nos lembramos.
