Place Based Education • What is it? • It is creating a personal sense of belonging in the world…beginning with “where you are now” • It is a way of connecting - deeply to your surroundings • It is not connected to a specific place • The outdoor classroom is an educational tool, but it is just a component of the whole.

  4. Learning to Care School Yard Greater Community Neighborhood Watershed

  5. Using Art to Teach Life Cycles • A process approach to artwork frees everyone from “mistakes”! • Processes in Nature = Processes in Art • In artwork throughout the ages, the circle of life has been depicted literally, metaphorically, ironically, emotionally…you name it!

  6. We Are One All living things on Earth share a common origin. We all have bodies made of Earth and share the same life-materials.

  7. We are all made of stardust. We all have bodies made of six elements which were born in the heart of a dying star – atoms of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur.

  8. We all share sunlight energy; we all share the same water.We all live in communities. * From www.morning-earth.org

  13. Movement, change, light, growth and decay are the lifeblood of nature, the energies that I try to tap through my work. I need the shock of touch, the resistance of place, materials and weather, the earth is my source. – Andy Goldsworthy
