This is my final blog post to support my presentation at the Growing Greener Futures conference which was titled “How to make Book Soup”.
I have already listed books and short film clipsÂ which could be used to support the teaching of environmental themes and in this post I will cover a small number of pieces ofÂ music which could be used to evoke a sense of the outdoors in children’s minds. This is a limited list which hopefully will provide a starting point for discussions.
The music varies between classical, folk and a score written by the band British Sea Power for the 1934 film Man of Arran.
I would also recommend the lovely site Moodturn.com which hasÂ range of ambient music to reflect different places like beaches, the rainforest and even nighttime.
