Increase the level of time in the natural world

Your textbook discusses the benefits of time spent in the natural world for children including lower rates of obesity, increased attention and lower levels of stress. Conversely, your textbook cites increased levels of obesity and stress and lower rates of self-esteem and school performance in children who spend multiple hours engaged with entertainment media.

In a one page essay, describe how you would increase the level of time in the natural world with a child while reducing the amount of exposure to entertainment media. What activities might you add? What restrictions might you impose? How would you ensure that these guidelines where followed? Be sure to discuss the age of the child and what is appropriate according to the developmental theories we have discussed (Erickson, Piaget etc.) Include a reference page with at least one cited source (your textbook) and a cover page.

For full credit, please address the information above in detail and ensure that your paper is at least one full page in length.

While not exact, we are moving toward APA format so papers should be double-spaced and in 12-point font.

Name, date and assignment information should be found on a separate title page, preceding the body of the paper.

Any cited sources (hint: your text) should be written on a separate resources page following the body of the work and titled \”Resources\”.

Double space your assignment.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument
