BRAIN FACT: Development Of Children's Brains Is Enhanced When Regularly Exposed To Green Spaces For Play
Thursday, November 18, 2010
The development of children’s brains is enhanced when regularly exposed to green spaces for play or physical activity. Outdoor play can lead to better motor coordination, fewer attention problems, and an increase in memory.
“By the time most children attend kindergarten, they have watched more than 5,000 hours of television–enough time to earn a college degree.” This statement is from a recent report from the National Wildlife Federation entitled: Whole Child: Developing Mind, Body and Spirit Through Outdoor Play. You can read this extremely valuable report here:
The Naturally Developing Brains Activity Packet will be released soon. It is filled with ideas and information on how each included activity contributes to healthy brains. You can get pre-production pricing now at www.braininsightsonline.com. ~ Proceeds from the packet contribute toward nature pre-school efforts. They can also be purchased as a fund raiser for your program or organization!
