Outdoor Learning - Using your Senses

Outdoor Learning - Using your Senses

This lesson plan is a comprehensive lesson plan for how to use your senses in the Great Outdoors. I have used this as a stand-alone lesson with a group of 8 & 9-year-olds. It can be adapted to suit any age group and of course can be changed to suit the needs of the group. I used a variety of learning strategies to develop curiosity and overall interest. It seemed to work! More information can be found on www.garethmate.com

Backyard Mapping

Backyard Mapping

Children use a map to explore the features and layout of their outdoor learning area. They note personal connections to their outdoor environment and represent their thoughts, feelings and/or observations using their choice of medium. This activity is designed to help connect children to the wonders of the natural world through sensory and play-based learning. This activity is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, children are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.
