Unit 1: Get Ready to Get Grubby

U1_get_ready_cover

Preparation Rocks!

This unit is all about starting off on the right foot.

Greenthumbs will:
– create a scrapbook like dirtgirl’s;
– put together their nature detective kits.

There are tips on going outside safely and dirtgirl introduces how to explore the wonderful world we live in, and why choosing everyday behaviours is good for the planet.

And there’s plenty of singing along and dancing to Nature Walkabout!
