Kids Dig Dirt!

Green Paper

Begin the path to success in school and in life with a focus on engaging young children with nature. Early Education and Care program directors and managers, as well as teaching teams and community partners, may use this information to gather resources and activate change. Resources focus on the need to support the addition, expansion, or redevelopment of children’s outdoor environments and to support play and informal learning for health and sustainable development.

The Kids Dig Dirt! Green Paper serves as both a resource and a tool for ACM museum members. The paper provides a collection of facts, guidelines and forward-thinking language that museums can draw on while developing their own outdoor spaces, proposals for funding or other materials. A detailed source list is included so that museums can cite original ideas and copyrighted information. Kids Dig Dirt: Green Paper» [PDF, 1.34MB]
