Description

In this workshop, early learning teachers will learn key methods to confidently facilitate experiences in nature with (groups of) young children (0-6yrs). Educators will further develop their own connection to nature. This hands-on worshop will allow educators to experience, discuss, and learn more about nature related teaching tools such as:

- Storytelling
- Sit spots - how to get yourself and others to sit quietly in nature for periods of time
- Tracking wildlife and using questioning as a tool to facilitate curiosity
- Program design for success in the outdoors
- Use of risky tools such as carving knives and fires
- Navigating inclement weather
