In this documentary, nature’s powerful role in children’s health and development is explored through the experience of toddlers, children in middle childhood and adolescents, from Vermont to Washington, D.C. The film asks the questions: Why do children need unstructured time outside? How is play a form of learning? What does it mean to educate the ‘whole’ child? Judy Lem, manager of special projects at KaBOOM! introduces the film.
