Outdoor Play

...Abstract Children’s freedom to play outdoors and have no limitations is somewhat controversial in this day in age. There are numerous views whether outdoor play is actually beneficial or not, when it comes to discussing children’s learning and development. In recent government documents such as The Early Years Foundation Stage (2012), references are made about outdoor play and its importance for children regardless of the weather. Potentially, there is an adventure to be made every day when a child takes the classroom outside, and no where offers more potential. Allowing parents and practitioners to learn about the advantages of risk taking but also explore the big wide world can help children gain a better insight and knowledge of world they live in. The outdoor area changes with the seasons therefore presented with more spontaneous challenges resulting in developing the children holistically. This research study is small scale and intends to focus on the importance of outdoor play for young children but also investigate what knowledge and understanding both parents and practitioners have on the chosen subject. The case study will be carried out within a day nursery setting. The researcher intended to gain a wider understanding of the chosen topic – outdoor play, and the views of this within the setting but also see how the setting responds to the Government framework The Eely Years Foundation Stage when it comes to playing outdoors. The researcher aimed to do this......

Adventures in Fugawiland

...Adventures in Fugawiland Fugawiland: a land full of hardworking hunters, dedicated mothers, learning children, many animals, and lots and lots of land. Fugawiland is in between the border of Lake Superior and the Highlands. There were 25 different sites in Fugawiland, but we were only given information on 10 different sites. The areas in which the citizens of Fugawiland lived permanently were either by the shore or by a river in sites F, Y, R (shore), P, I, W, and C (river). About twice as many people lived in sites by the shoreline compared to people who lived by the river. Site F contained the largest amount of Fugawilanders, about 45 people. A way to estimate the number of people living at a site is to multiply the number of houses by five because the huts in Fugawiland likely housed 4 to 6 people-leaving the average number of people per hut at five. Sites Y and R were tied for the second to most sites with the largest amount of people living I them with about 40 people in each site. In the sites that were located closer to a river, there was much less people. Site I had the most people living there, about 25. In each of the sites by the river and shore where the people lived there were only 2-4 graves per site. Most likely, the majority of the people got buried at site X, the largest site that archaeologists dug up in all of Fugawiland, located in the plains. This is because site X contained the most amount of graves and bundle burials-19 graves and 40 bundle......

The Adventures of Aladdin

.... ." "Too bad for you," snapped the stranger, slamming down the manhole cover, never noticing that, as he did so, a ring slid off his finger. A terrified Aladdin was left in pitch darkness, wondering what the wizard would do next. Then he trod on the ring. Aimlessly putting it on his finger, he twisted it round and round. Suddenly the room was flooded with a rosy light and a great genie with clasped hands appeared on a cloud. "At your command, sire," said the genie. Now astoundede, Aladdin could only stammer: "I want to go home!" In a flash he was back in his own home, though the door wa tightly shut. "How did you get in?" called his mother from the kitchen stove, the minute she set eyes on him. Excitedly, her son told her of his adventures. "Where's the silver coin?" his mother asked. Aladdin clapped a hand to his brow. For all he had brought home was the old oil lamp "Oh, mother! I'm so sorry. This is all I've got." "Well, let's hope it works. It's so dirty . . ." and the widow began to rub the lamp. Suddenly out shot another genie, in a cloud of smoke. "You've set me free, after centuries! I was a prisoner in the lamp, waiting to be freed by someone rubbing it. Now, I'm your obedient servant. Tell me your wishes." And the genie bowed respectfully, awaiting Aladdin's orders. The boy and his mother gaped wordlessly at this incredible apparition, then the genie said with a hint of impatience in his voice. "I'm here at your command. Tell me what you want. Anything......

Kids and Outdoors

...Kids and Outdoors I believe that kids should have a good solid foundation and this starts at home with their parents. There should be a balance in their lives, “Too much of one this is really good for nothing.” Only when this happens, a solid, cultured, well rounded, discipline child of today will be the leader, model citizen and inspiration for tomorrow. With such advancements in technology in the past decade, kids are not getting enough exposure to outdoors. They are glued to television, computers, smart phones and other electronic smart devices. In most families, both parents work, leaving the kids to become their own entertainers or Mom and Dads are too tired or simply don’t have a second to spend with their kids. The kids may become withdrawn or anti social which will have a long-term effect of their ability to grow into well rounded adults. The social impact of too much exposure to electronic media can be seen as huge disadvantage for children and family relationships. I will attempt, using online articles and data bases from a variety of sources, to highlight the negative impact of over exposure to electronic media. I will show the effects this is having on children and families within the past two decades. This time frame is a good starting point to compare how traditional family values and togetherness from two decades ago have changed, as technology advanced to new heights just within the last ten years. I will explain how family......

Adventures

...You don’t know about me, without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth. That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. Aunt Polly—Tom’s Aunt Polly, she is—and Mary, and the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book, which is mostly a true book, with some stretchers, as I said before. Now the way that the book winds up is this: Tom and me found the money that the robbers hid in the cave, and it made us rich. We got six thousand dollars apiece—all gold. It was an awful sight of money when it was piled up. Well, Judge Thatcher he took it and putit out at interest, and it fetched us a dollar a day apiece all the year round—more than a body could tell what to do with. The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn’t stand it no longer I lit out. I got into my old rags and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied. But Tom Sawyer he hunted me up and said he was going to start a band of robbers, and I might join if I would go back to the widow and be respectable. So I went back. The widow she cried over me, and......

There may be people that are just focused on themselves and find it hard to relate to others, or......

A Graphic Adventure

...A Graphic Adventure A Graphic Adventure Nathan Reece Herzing University A Graphic Adventure The holocaust is well known as a very tragic event and a first-hand account of such an event is already intriguing enough. However, Art Spiegelman took the intrigue a step further by telling it through an ironic graphic novel. The short adscript, “Prisoner of War” is an ironic graphic representation of the holocaust from a Russian’s perspective. Artie, a secluded boy, visits his father one of many times to ascertain more information about his past experiences in the war. In this instance his father recollects a time of tragic momentums. Artie listens eagerly although seems to take more interest in the recording story’s events than his father’s suffering. Perhaps one of the most ironic aspects of this graphic novel is the decision to use animals to depict race and nationality. Rats and Mice, for example, are used for the male and female Jewish characters. Cats are used for German soldiers and pigs for the Polish, who were very bitter towards the Germans at this time. This allowed him to depict something through picture that he would normally describe in long script. The variation shows the Jews as pests, which is how society saw them at the time. And it also showed the German as their predators and natural oppressors. Cats are viewed as a control factor for rats and mice, which exactly the way they saw themselves. Prior to telling the story, Vladek is......

Outdoor Dissertation

...skills, in particular the relational and behavioural ones, it is necessary to refer to a new type of training a new didactic approach that propose significant experiences that are going to carve on the emotional sphere, and their personal profile. Between the different methodologies that use the practical experience of the learner as the principle learning factor, I chose to analyse the method of the outdoor training, recently arrived to the market of training and development for organizations, and adopted by the public and private companies , to develop and implement in the human resources, some transversal competences very important for the organizations’ success, such as: Communication skills, problem solving, team working, faith and risk taking. The outdoor training, with the respect of other experience training methods present strong innovating factors: it transforms not only the learning approach, based on physical activities and group exercitation, but also the learning environments. The principle characteristic of this method is as suggested from the term outdoor, is its practice in the open-air environment most of the time in contact with the nature. It is about unusual contexts, completely distant to the learners’ landmark, in fact they are request to make the maximum physical and mental effort to be involved in these activities. 1.2 Approach These practices will be addressed through a critical review of the literature on human resources, most of......

Adventures in Cheating

...Adventures in Cheating A guide to buying term papers online. Students, your semester is almost over. This fall, did you find yourself pulling many bong hits but few all-nighters? Absorbing much Schlitz but little Nietzsche? Attending Arizona State University? If the answer is yes to any or (especially) all these questions, you will no doubt be plagiarizing your term papers. Good for you—we're all short on time these days. Yes, it's ethically blah blah blah to cheat on a term paper blah. The question is: How do you do it right? For example, the chump move is to find some library book and copy big hunks out of it. No good: You still have to walk to the library, find a decent book, and link the hunks together with your own awful prose. Instead, why not just click on a term paper Web site and buy the whole damn paper already written by some smart dude? Que bella! Ah, but which site? I shopped at several online term paper stores to determine where best to spend your cheating dollar. After selecting papers on topics in history, psychology, and biology, I had each paper graded by one of my judges. These were: Slate writer David Greenberg, who teaches history at Columbia; my dad, who teaches psychology at the University of Rhode Island (sometimes smeared as the ASU of the East); and my girlfriend, who was a teaching assistant in biology at Duke (where she says cheating was quite common). So, which site wins for the best combination of price and paper quality? I compared......

Adventure

...Adventure refers to the exciting activity or unusual experience. These experiences are often of daring or risky nature. There are many people whose life is filled up with adventurous experiences. The definition of Adventure varies from person to person. It is in actually defined as ‘a risky undertaking of unknown outcome’ which means that an adventurer is one who gets a thrill out of exploits, the result of which may also be dangerous or if in favour, then sublime. Let us consider the options individuals have for adventure, in the modern world, to suit their tastes. To start off with, we can consider sports and its varied disciplines, which are adventurous for sportsmen. Ballooning is a sport which has a lot of scope for adventure; of course it is only for those who can afford it, being a costly proposition. The element of risk is always there with the change of weather and balloons filled with helium prone to lightning and leaks. One can imagine the thrill of rising high into the sky without the drone of an engine and with the advantage of being able to control the direction. The risk factor also is great like the attempts at crossing the Atlantic where these contraption have fallen into oceans after facing turbulent weather or landed on top of mountains with the occupant not equipped to get down to inhabited areas.

Mis Sytem for Adventure Club

...Introduction Go Ape is an outdoor adventure company that offers tree climbing, mountain biking and even segway riding experiences in 27 forest locations across the UK. Aside from a small central office in Suffolk, most of the company’s business takes place under – or in – the forest canopy. 1. Identify and source information needs When they founded the company in 2001, husband and wife team Tristram and Rebecca Mayhew used to run it themselves from the forest sites. But since the company has grown to reach £11 million in annual turnover, and today it employs 500 staff. According to operations director Jan Beattie, this means management by intuition is no longer appropriate. “Previously, we would be on site, interacting with customers and staff on a regular basis,” she says. “If we had a gut feeling about something, it was based on experience, and those gut feelings were generally right.” “Now the directors are removed from the sites, we have to support our gut feelings with evidence and data,” she says. “We need information, and not just information from one site, but from all 27.” Meanwhile, the way in which employees input data into Go Ape’s management systems has also come under strain. To allow employees to file health and safety reports and customer feedback forms, Go Ape had to install PCs in cabins at each location, but this was far from ideal. Making sure the ramps, pulleys and planks were in a safe condition, for example, required one employee with a......
