Professional Development

Wanting to take students outside for learning, but don’t know where to start? Are you looking for practical tips and motivation to enhance your outdoor teaching practice? We’d love to come to your school and show you how simple, engaging, and fun learning outside in the schoolyard can be!

In this experiential session we’ll help you to find ways to bring learning to life outside. Whether your focus is motivation for getting started with outdoor learning, expanding your practice into the winter months, or exploring the social-emotional benefits of teaching outdoors, we can tailor the session to fit your needs.

Thanks so much for everything - it was a really special experience! We appreciated the many simple, time-friendly activities we took away to use with our students.
