This Looking Closer Book Bundle is part of the Looking Closely Outdoor Learning Kit. However, if you just want to order the books you are welcome to do so. The books come with book specific lesson sparks, guiding questions, and curricular connections for looking closely outdoors.

These were curated and created by teachers Megan Zeni, Sarah Regan and Lauren MacLean. Megan and Sarah are job share partners teaching entirely outdoors in a K-7 garden classroom. Megan shares these experiences of outdoor play and learning on Instagram and Twitter at @roomtoplay. Lauren is a K-7 mentoring support teacher who has a love for playing, learning, and teaching outdoors. She is the host of the Mentoring Nature Connections podcast and author of Me and My Sit Spot.
