This is a book about living, learning and caring. It features a collection of North American Indian stories and related hands-on activities and discussion questions designed to inspire children-ages five through twelve-and help them to feel a part of their surroundings. The emphasis is on an interdisciplinary approach to teaching about the Earth and Native American cultures. With their close ties to the land, North American Indian cultures are a vital link between human society and nature. Intended to provoke curiosity amoung children, each activity facilitates a discovery of the environment and helps children understand the influence they have on their surroundings. The activites engage a child's whole self: emotions, senses, thoughts and actions. They involve the students in creative arts, theater, reading, writing, science, social studies, mathematics and sensory awareness. Moving from the written page to the immediate and meaningful event of a blindfolded child sensing a forest environment by smelling, touching and listening-this is what Keepers of the Earth is all about.
