Theme  Topic  Sub Topic Age HP Details
Buildings Natural building materials Learn the importance of the orientation of a building/den (with respect to sun/wind and how it effects the inside microclimate e.g. a den with the wind passing through will be cooler than one sheltered from the wind).
Connections Patterns Observe the sound landscape, listening for patterns (e.g. bird song, river etc.).
Connections Patterns See branching and spiral patterns in different natural systems (e.g. water, flowers, growing plants).
Connections Patterns Observe the similarities between human beings and other animals (eat, sleep, excrete...).
Connections Patterns Spot the plants, insects or birds which are abundant in certain seasons.
Connections Patterns Collect things which are abundant at that time of year: foraging (e.g. berries).
Connections Patterns Create your own pattern (like a mandala, or spiral).
Connections Patterns Make prints from leaves, bark, shells and other interesting natural textures and patterns.
Connections Patterns Dance in a pattern, e.g. a spiral.
Connections Patterns Play percussion instruments together, with groups following different rhythms that combine together like an orchestra.
Connections Patterns Listen to stories about the patterns of nature - patterns of the seasons and other natural cycles.
Connections Patterns Learn about the different seasonal patterns.
Connections Patterns Learn about the different patterns which exist in nature (spiral, branching etc.).
Connections Patterns See fractals (e.g. in a cauliflower, ferns).
Connections Patterns See the same pattern in different natural systems (e.g. the branching pattern is in trees, rivers, leaves and lungs), try using a magnifying glass to observe closely.
Connections Patterns See the patterns within the large scale (e.g. stars, weather or ocean currents), to give us a sense of place and develop a sense of awe.
Connections Patterns Find different patterns in several different systems: (e.g. spirals in rivers: flowers: snails, also spirals, scatter, wave, net, lobe) and try to work out the function of that pattern (e.g. branching for collection and distribution, spirals for growth).
Connections Patterns Create colour print from plants (e.g. through hapa zome) to see the patterns within leaves and flowers.
Connections Patterns Connect to a pattern in nature, and express it through any art form (dance, draw, paint).
Connections Patterns Make music together, e.g. each person goes into nature to 'capture' a sound (e.g. hitting 2 sticks together, slapping water, mimicking the sound of a bird). Return to a circle. Going around the circle each person individually presents their sound. One person takes the role of conductor and points at someone to make their sound, keep the rhythm going whilst different sounds are added and taken away.
