Participants will learn how to help the school-age children in their programs investigate and take an interest in the world - beginning with their own immediate surroundings. This includes developing skills in planning experiences that are meaningful to school-age children, making them feel competent and industrious and involving them in their communities.
- To develop plans which reflect an understanding of children's special interests and abilities.
- To generate a list of community and world resources that will enable children to investigate their world including their immediate environment and beyond. These resources may be useful for creating clubs and special interest groups.
- To generate a list of ideas for use with clubs and special interest groups.
