This Book Was a Tree: Ideas, Adventures, and Inspiration for Rediscovering the Natural World

By Marcie Chambers Cuff
At no time in human history have we been more disconnected with what lies outside our front doors. Within just a century, our relationship with our surroundings has transformed from one of exploration to one of disassociation. In "This Book Was a Tree," science teacher Marcie Cuff issues a call for a new era of pioneers not leathery, backwoods deerskin-wearing salt pork and hominy pioneers, but strong-minded, clever, crafty, mudpie-making, fort-building individuals committed to examining the natural world and deciphering nature s perplexing puzzles.
Within each chapter, readers will discover a principle for reconnecting with the natural world around them, from learning to be still to discovering the importance of giving back. With a mix of science and hands-on crafts and activities, readers will be encouraged to brainstorm, imagine, and understand the world as inventive scientists to touch, collect, document, sketch, decode, analyze, experiment, unravel, interpret, compare, and reflect."
