Overview

Wherever you live or visit, you can find nature as long as you look for it. You can find insects crawling in a small patch of grass in the city. Your kids can discover the creatures living in the backyard of your suburban home. You can explore the field or forest within your area’s conservation land. Even if you don’t know much about nature, you can engage your children, whether they are two or twelve, in their surroundings by stimulating their observation skills and imaginations.

Games on the Go: Nature Games and Activities for You and Your Kids, is filled with nature activities you can do while walking outdoors. A walk to school or around your neighborhood becomes an interactive learning adventure instead of a mechanical journey to get to “there.”

This book is a useful tool for parents, environmental educators, camp counselors, teachers, scout leaders, and anyone who goes outside with children ages 2-to-12. Within the descriptions of the different nature activities, you’ll find ways to adapt the actions for one child or a group, as well as ways you can tweak the games for different age groups as well as multiple-age groups.

Meet the Author

Susan Caplan McCarthy has taught for the state-based conservation organization Mass Audubon since 1997. She works with school kids and homeschool children on field trips, day campers from ages four-to-fourteen, and preschool and elementary school-age children during classroom presentations.

While some of the classes are indoors, the majority involve teaching in an outdoor classroom, Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary, a 2000-acre suburban wildlife sanctuary twenty-five miles south of Boston. Although she often has to follow framework-based lesson plans (some which she helped to create), she finds that there are always those in-between moments while walking along the trails when a game or two helps to keep kids engaged with their surroundings.

McCarthy has taught workshops for the American Camp Association (ACA) and the Massachusetts Environmental Education Society (MEES).

She has published several eBooks on nature activities for various ages.
