Educators are encouraged to visit the EE Week website and to take advantage of the resources available for their classrooms and programs.
This week we’ll highlight resources for artists, naturalists and educators. Some will come from the depths of ArtPlantae’s archives and others will be new resources to consider. Take, for example, the new book by paper engineer and book artist Shawn Sheehy.
Last month Shawn published his first trade book, Welcome to the Neighborwood. This book is about animals and ecosystems found in many locations across the country. Children and adults will learn about land snails, hummingbirds, garden spiders, honeybees, Potter wasps, beavers and stickleback fish in the kind of grand pop-up style only Shawn can deliver.
Begin EE Week by taking a few moments to look inside Shawn’s new book and learn how Shawn created his book by watching the videos on his website.
Then take a trip to your local bookstore and treat yourself or your favorite young naturalist to Welcome to the Neighborwood!
