Workshop Description: Taking the Inside Out
Think of an activity you offer regularly in your classroom (drawing, reading, writing, blocks, painting). How could you move it outside? What help would you need? In this workshop we will explore the endless possibilities of encouraging learning and exploration outside the classroom. We will delve into the roadblocks that keep you from doing more outside while also exploring questions you have about how to maximize the time spent outside. While spending some of the workshop outside ourselves, we will explore and articulate specific ways to take learning outdoors.
