Today we offer two videos:
Toys “R” Us ran this ad in 2013. It opens with a group of children on a bus on their way to a school field trip. The leader starts talking about trees, but that is a ruse…
In response the Trees R Us video was filmed at the Juniper Hill School in Alna, Maine. Anne Stires, featured in the video, is Lead Teacher for the Seeds classroom (pre-K and K) and founding School Director at Juniper Hill. Anne earned her MEd from Antioch University New England and when not exploring the woods of Alna, ME is adjunct faculty in the Nature-based Early Childhood certificate and Integrated Learning /Teacher Certification MEd programs.
Our future depends on our children making connections with each other and the world around them. There is a landscape of possible futures, which will we choose?
