Researching Nature Play is a research project funded through the Education HORIZON grant scheme by the Queensland Government. The project aims to determine how you children aged 4-5 years learn scientific concepts when supported through nature play. While nature play is a popular preschool pedagogy its effectiveness to provide new knowledges by bringing together social and natural sciences, is mostly undocumented. The methodology used in the project is cartographic, focusing on creating visual maps through observations, photography, video captures, drawing and journaling.
