Exploring the Power in Learning Outdoors! By exploring the power in learning outdoors, we will discover the rationale and research supporting creating nature connections and enhancing child development by moving outdoors as much as possible. Participants will establish their own connections and identify roadblocks with working with children outdoors.
Harnessing the Power of all our Senses Outdoors Beyond just the usual five senses, we'll explore how our body, emotions, and brain are all activated when we spend time learning outdoors. This fun and invigorating session will walk participants through these benefits as well!
