Children who are naturalistic learners are like kinesthetic learners. The naturalist learner’s language is touching, feeling, holding, and working with natural and environmental elements in school.
Naturalist learners need exposure to rocks, animals, and plants. They enjoy all the sciences being outdoors to camp, hike, explore, rock climbing, star gazing, and biology.
To create a thriving environment for a naturalistic learner, make sure that there are activities that are:
- hands-on experiences
- outside of the classroom
Naturalist learners also like to write down and draw observations in notebooks, work with charts and graphs, and label things.
There are some teachers and educators who don’t believe in a naturalist learning style; thinking that this type of student is expressing an interest and not a style of learning. Either way, these students thrive in a classroom that allows for plenty of investigation, observation, and interaction.
Speaking, writing, reading, and languages are all keys to engaging and teaching the verbal-linguistic learner.
