The project ‘Earth Action ’by Della Burford is to take the “Magical Earth Secret” book which is a best- seller in Canada and and been a performance in New York, Canada, and Japan and come up with an Activity Guide for children to encourage ecological action in the world. The book is called “Earth Action”. It will be able to also be used independently or with the picture book.
Dale Bertrand has helped me to take the activities developed in the original guide idea which has been developed over many years and adapt these activities to today. Jacquie Howardson has helped in editing.
The idea in Earth Action is to “Take your love of Nature into Action”. Also to know “You can make a difference”.
In Magical Earth Secrets the Eagle Child loses its colors because of pollution With the l help of the little people of the four directions in the we are reminded to take care of the Earth, Water, Air, and renew our connection to the Sun and Star. We must love and protect the earth.
In the”Earth Action” we see Nature Wheels that show us the Cycles of Nature and remind us that these are all connected.
We also see Art, Music, Drama, Dance, and Making Book Activities.
To honor the work of Buckminster Fuller the book ‘Earth Action’ is dedicated to him and his work.
Six Inventions have been highlighted and seven Bucky Activity Cards created.
I am presently expanding the Earth Action in a program with the Space Camp of the Buckminster Fuller Institute.
