    How can children be encouraged to make a lasting connection to nature? This program profiles the efforts of educators and parents to introduce children to the natural world and to involve them—through outdoor play, class activities, and their own creative work—in a process of outdoor discovery. Beyond the immediate benefits to child development that come with exploration and improvisational learning, the program documents how meaningful time spent outdoors can cultivate in children a permanent caring for nature—a crucial ethic of environmental responsibility.

    How do children come to literacy? This documentary observes that encouraging young children to make pictures—to invent their own graphic representations—sets the literacy process in motion. As children experiment with crayons, markers and pencils, they begin to realize that these marks can stand for the sounds of language. That learning path leads from telling stories with pictures to telling stories with words. And as some very enthusiastic young students demonstrate, these early interests can evolve into a passion for reading and writing.<

    For its lasting benefit to children, “play” goes well beyond the fun involved. This program observes young children in play sequences that require planning, negotiating, collaborating, taking roles and developing narratives. In these sequences, children explore language and the imaginative “as if” thinking that leads to advanced intellectual functioning. When a Child Pretends demonstrates that pretend play is an essential arena for the child’s intellectual, social, emotional, and imaginative development.
