An Activity Guide for Teachers
They produce an activity pack, with vaulable ideas and resources for teaching sky awareness to children. We think this is a very worthwhile endeavour. According to a study by Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, the incorporation of the guide into educational programs has been shown to increase visual arts and literary skills.
Jack Borden, the founder of For Spacious Skies, argues that people who are sky-aware have five advantages: they are environmentally protective; aesthetically sensitized to the world; spiritual, having more of a sense of wonder about them; mellower, and more receptive to information related to the atmosphere. Who can argue with that?
