Children & Nature Network – Thriving Through Nature: Fostering Children’s Executive Function Skills

The Children & Nature Network has integrated the Harvard Center on the Developing Child’s research about developing executive functions with the seven common play motifs that David Sobel has found that children — regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or ecosystem — use in unstructured play.  Check out Thriving Through Nature: Fostering Children’s Executive Function Skills for evidence-informed, developmentally-appropriate, nature-based activities that promote the development of executive functions in children 0-18 years old.  These can be used year-round, at home or in an educational setting, and with few additional funding resources.
