Suggested discussion topics

  • How big the Earth is and how small our part of it is in proportion to the rest.
  • How far apart we are from others (if you have loved ones in a faraway place, point that location out to emphasize distance or print a second colouring page to complete and make a gift to send their way).
  • What types of nature are found in your location (wildlife, flowers, trees, bodies of water).
  • What makes your surrounding area different from other locations.
  • What the child’s favourite thing is about nature in your area.
  • Why it’s important to care for things outside as we do for things inside, to protect our shared natural resources.
