Have you ever had an experience in nature where you really paid attention and for a moment felt you were part of everything around you? In this workshop, children will deepen into their own personal experience and connection to the Earth. Through creative writing and using the themes as inspiration from Wonder Earth, students will reflect on both the heart-felt significance as well as the scientific importance of a personal ‘wonder earth moment’, and create a class Wonder Earth book!

Topics covered

  • Experiences in nature for story inspiration
  • Patterns and processes which sustain life
  • Creative writing with scientific themes
  • Reflection of our relationship to the world

Curriculum outcomes

  • Thinking imaginatively, creatively and interpretatively
  • Reflecting on learning
  • Responding and composing
  • Living world
  • Earth and space
