Discussion questions for Last Child in the Woods

We’re sure that Last Child in the Woods has given you a lot to ponder! (By a pond, perhaps?!) But in case not, here are some questions to think about, wherever you may be.
Please share your comments!

Can you compare your own childhood interactions with nature to those of a contemporary child? What are the similarities? Differences?

Can a child in an intensely urban setting easily find “a piece of nature” (without going to a park)? Where might they find it?

What’s more real for today’s children, technology or nature? Or is there a balance?

What experience in nature have you had that you wish every child could have? Why?
