"Just as children need good nutrition and adequate sleep, they may very well need contact with nature" (Louv, 2008) How often do you use the greatest classroom in the world; the outdoors? In this session, I will share research in the field of ecological literacy and encourage you to think about your role in promoting the use of the outdoors in your school. I will share with you different ideas of how you can break down your classroom walls and use nature to help guide your teaching practice. In the session, I'll also share successful implementation of an extra curricular Outdoor Education group. Come learn how you and your students can forge a greater connection to the outdoors!
