Join us for this half day workshop learning from and on the land. We’ll discuss what makes the outdoors a unique learning space and how to best connect students to the land. We’ll focus on how to incorporate nature play, guided exploration and stories from the land into numeracy and literacy learning. Together, we’ll profile inspiring literacy and numeracy examples to provide you with tangible ideas and tools to take back to your classroom. There will also be multiple ways to collaborate and learn from each other along the way. Expand your learning environment and create inclusive, meaningful connections to nearby nature or protected landscapes. This workshop will be hosted by Alberta Parks education specialists and will be completely outdoors. Please come prepared to be immersed in nature.
