Spring Splendour

Virtual

In this FREE course, discover a wealth of spring activities students will love, and feel calm and confident taking your teaching outdoors!

The teaching needs of this year have changed (and changed, and changed!), and taking your students outside is more important than ever! This course will be an introduction to getting your students outside and making nature your classroom! It will cover risk assessment, how to keep kids happy, safe and engaged outside in all weather, as well as nature themed games & activities to add to your teaching toolkit. This course includes an optional virtual community circle with time for participants to respond to discussion questions related to the current teaching situation. We've also added a webinar experience which will support learning and greater comfort in making connections to Indigenous Perspective with Natural Curiosity! Funded by NSERC
