This presentation will explore young children’s experiences of the forest from a three year study titled ‘Naming the World’. Margaret Somerville and Sarah Powell will share videos and photos of ‘deep hanging out’ in the forest with young children and their educators. Sometimes the forest did not produce anything, other times it seemed alive and vibrant with possibilities for literacy and sustainability learning.
